You’ve just finished the ‘For What It’s Worth EP Release Tour’ – tell us, how was it?
Amazing! It’s actually the first time I’m playing with a full band and it feels much more dynamic. The band was giving me so much energy. I have to admit though, we were all a bit nervous at our first show in Antwerp. Eventually, it turned out well. We kept on getting better every show and I’m very pleased to say four out of five shows were completely sold out.
Did you have a favorite city, in particular, to perform in?
I’d have to say Amsterdam. The vibe is really different over there. People there are more likely to embrace your music because they’re a bit more open-minded. Leuven was definitely great too. It was the busiest show with close to 900 people showing up. To see that many people singing your songs, that’s insane.
Now that your tour is done and summer is in sight, which festivals are you looking forward to?
I’m really excited for Couleur Café. Last year I performed there already with the hip-hop collective Niveau4. I wonder how it’ll be like to perform there as a solo artist. Besides that, I’ll also be doing my very first festival in the Netherlands, Festival Mundial. I’d really love to play at Coachella one day, but for now, I only visit Coachella online… on YouTube. A man can dream though.
Considering your success lately, Coachella might come around sooner than you’d expect! You’ve been featured in international playlists. How does that feel?
I mean, I love receiving all these messages on my Facebook and Instagram from fans abroad. However, I’m not where I want to be yet. To me, this is just the very beginning. I want to keep on making new stuff and really reinvent myself. I’m only 23 so there’s a lot of time left for me to experiment with genres I haven’t covered before. There’s a lot more to learn for me to get better as an artist.
