Interview with AGGIE
What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
Since I recall Ive been writing songs and singing, from forcing my neighbours to listen to me (Id come over, sit them down and perfirm with a toothpaste mic) as a small child to singing at a school contest and writing music throughout college. I think like music got me, not the other way around. So there was no choice here.
