My journey with music started during my early stages of my childhood . My first passion to listen to music and songs. So, whenever I go out with my family , I used to stop at any moment that I saw a piano or a musical instrument. I just wanted to play on it . I would tell my family to leave me with the piano .

The concept of the album (Winter Stories) is derived from moments of my childhood during winter season . So I tried to translate these memories, which related to winter in my music .
