Music

I love writing; Be it about my feelings, thoughts, poems, experiences, and whatever it is that I can write. Luckily, I am a bit of a musician as well, therefore many of my writings can be transformed into songs. I do not like to be called a singer-songwriter, as I am not much of a singer. I would prefer the term storyteller.

I write – record – produce – perform – mix – and engineer my own songs. With cheap musical and audio instruments (microphone, pre-amp, mini mixer, laptop, midi controller, VST plugins, some sequencer, some sampler, acoustic guitar, bass and electric guitar), I started to record songs in my bedroom.

Back in the days in Jakarta, I used to perform at pubs, radio shows, weddings and other events. My lovely friends / band members who were always there for me were Yessi Kristianto (piano, keyboard, midi), Ava Victoria (violin), Dimas Chondro (guitar), and Ricky Respito (drums). For what it’s worth, 8 of my songs have been aired in some of the most famous radio stations back home. Disclaimer: I used to work at one of these radios.

After about 2 years working on my music on the side, I decided to leave home and move to London to pursue my master’s degree. Being a full-time student, I perform regularly at some open mic nights, friends’ birthdays and whatnot. There, I met my wonderful Swedish-singing-duet, Sophie, who sings much better than me.

After London, I moved to Sydney – Australia, where I currently live. Here I met some British musicians: 2 English guys and a Scottish girl. And together, we sing some old and classic British tunes at some pubs and small events.
