When I first began to live in Italy I was inspired by the music that I was listening to on the Italian radio stations. I was spending some time in Milano getting to know the city and by using a friends piano I began to compose some melodies that were my idea of Italian melodies that I was hearing around me. I searched Milano for someone who could help me meet someone in the Italian record industry and I luckily happened to meet up with a music producer who liked my ideas. We began to work together and my first album came into being a reality. Blue Dolphin was my first success.
