The first seven years of my life, me, my mom and dad and my four older siblings lived in a suburb of Stockholm, and my mom was very active with directing theater. So I basically grew up at the theater on the floors of the shows, so I was really surrounded with music at a young age.
I don't really care about a song or lyrics; I'm really just interested in the way people emphasize words. That's what makes a strong impact on me.
I grew up listening to a lot of soul music, which has probably informed the way that I sing on my tracks.
I stumbled into soul music at a very young age. It had something that really spoke to me.
I was 17, still in school, and my manager saw me in school, and then we hooked up, and after that, I went straight into making music.
I spent 2010-2012 in Stockholm, trying to figure things out. I caught up on life! At the end of 2012, the relationship I was in ended, and I took the first plane to L.A. where my Swedish label has been setting up base. I felt so much more inspired to write and record than I had ever been, and the songs just started coming.
I don't know about the hair. I've had it since I was a kid, and when I look at myself in the mirror, it looks quite normal. But then when I look at myself in a photo, I realise that my hair is basically bigger than my head! There's quite a lot of interest in my hair, which is strange, as for me, it's normal!
