aBOUT karin´s MUSIC
"Music has always been a part of me. It is a way to express your feelings and also make it into something that is almost physical. You can speak without the need of words. And you are able to share with other people. Connecting.
I have always had the need to express myself. At the age of six I started writing diary and part of times I wrote every day. Later I began writing lyrics instead, which I consider similar.
I believe that true happiness and satisfaction comes from being the one you are and following your heart. This is what I want to do. Communicate and affect through music".
