MUSIC & YOU
When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?
At a very young age, when watching cartoons 🙂 .. then I started listening to pop music, the first album I ever purchased was “Bat Out of Hell” by “Meat Loaf” when I was 14, and I still love it!
Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?
Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?
I don’t focus on one artist or genre, I like Madonna, Linkin Park , Leona Lewis, Beyonce, The Saturdays…and a lot more. Quite some time ago I was crazy about Enya, Enigma, and New Age in general, now they’re the bands I listen to the least.
If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?
Definitely “I Believe In You” by IL Divo and Celine Dion, it’s the most encouraging song I ever heard, its lyrics are brimming with the deepest, noblest emotions.
Is there a song that – to you – captures the spirit of your startup and what you have set out to do? What would it be?
If I imagined Lyreach singing it would sing: “Hard” by Rihanna & Young Jeezy I was listening to that song a lot while Lyreach was in the final stages of development, Lyreach was taking my time and my effort and it was hard going!
