The lockdown may be easing off, but there’s still very little live music going on. Still. that hasn’t stopped the fantastic musicians on Lanzarote doing their very best to continue to share their music with you. There are still watch parties and online concerts taking place.

What type of music do you perform?

Rock, pop, ballads, rock & roll, swing.

How are you keeping going with your music?

Singing around the house and when I take the dog for a walk. The neighbours love me!

Where do you put your performances?

I did a live performance on Facebook on Mother’s Day.

What message do you have for your friends, family and fans?

Stay strong and stay at home.

Which artists inspire you the most?

When I was younger, it was Robbie Williams. I have been doing a tribute to him since I was 16. But during my whole life it remains Queen, who I do a tribute to as well.

How did you start out in music?

I entered a competition called Canta, Canta in Calpe in mainland Spain, where I grew up from the age of 4 – and I won! I was 15 years old.

Do you have any tips for beginners?

Always warm your voice up and keep trying. Don’t stop learning new songs when you’re young – it helps when you’re old!

What are you missing about not playing live gigs?

The audience. The dog just doesn’t respond in the same way. Is there any venue in particular that you miss playing in? Tekkers in Costa Teguise.

What’s your lockdown song?

Ain’t Nothing Gonna Break My Stride is being played constantly at home. It’s our official lockdown song.
