Andre W R
My name is Andre and I'm a singer-songwriter from Denmark. For last 3-5 years of my life, I've had a deep desire to work in the music industry as a songwriter.
Although I can't say I come from a family of musicians, I still remember how my child-hood home was always filled with the latest hits from artists like Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle, Toni Braxton, Lenny Kravitz, Prince and many more.
I also remember how in awe I was of these artist's talents and didn't actually realize how much work and how many people were involved behind the scenes in creating these amazing songs. At some point, it dawned on me that there were producers and songwriters involved and that's when I started creating my own melodies that I would record on my phone and try to make into full songs.
However, it took many, many years before I realized that I really wanted to pursue music and songwriting and so began a long journey of trying to learn about creating music and writing songs and also trying to sing them without sounding like an animal going into labor. :)
I create all my songs by myself and usually create everything from scratch. Other times I find inspiration from listening to (royalty free) loops and then try to create a song around that loop. It varies a lot.
If I'm picked to participate in the ISINA mentorship I will use the opportunity to try and get publishing deal as a songwriter.
To be completely honest, I must admit that I don't necessarily think I have what it takes to be a recording artist but I'm very confident in my talents as a singer and a songwriter and know that I will work as hard as I can to showcase my talents and create great music at the academy if I'm picked.
Thanks for reading my profile and listening to my songs! See you in LA? :D
