“I am an expressionist; I sing what I say, I say what I feel and I feel what I play honesty. Some will get bored of me, but I invite the patient listener to come forth, feel and, most importantly, engage with me without asking too many questions. Hopefully, by the end of performance, the audience shall get answers , whether pleasing or not”.
