First let’s start with where you grew up, and what got you interested in music?

I grew up in Örebro, Sweden, went to piano class when I was pretty young. It was sooo boring but my mother found a German piano teacher that got me going. It´s thanks to her that I play. She was a tough teacher but when I started playing jazz she listen to radio recordings I made and came with feedback although she was only teaching classical piano music.
