1 – When did you first get into music? What or who Inspired you?
My parents are the musicians that’s why my first performance was in 3 years old. Then it was a lot of festivals, competitions, jazz bands. Val was always in art. He was studying Fine art in Central Saint Martins but music was always his passion. We met four years ago and started The Hardkiss.
2 – Who did you grow up listening to, and does that impact on what you create now?
I’ve grown up on jazz music Rachelle Ferrell, Regina Belle, Patty Austin, George Benson, Gaelle were my gurus. Val is listening to rock and alternative music, his favorites are Tool, NIN, Massive Attack, Radiohead, The Prodigy, Faith No More, Depeche Mode, Korn, MM, APC, Portishead.
That’s why our music is so style mixed, we have a very different influences. Our beats and guitars are very hard and rock, but melodies and vocals are deep and smooth.
