Q&A / Pevanni
What or who inspired you to start making music?
At around the age of 10, I first discovered bands like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit, and was daydreaming of playing guitar on big stages all the time. A few years later I finally bought my first real guitar and gradually taught myself to play songs by ear.
What inspires you the most in your daily life? Why?
I listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and a ton of music which inspire me to grow, learn, and become a better person and musician every day.
Where do you feel the most centered and happy?
When I'm out hiking in the woods with my girlfriend on a clear sunny winter day without anyone around. That would be my happy place.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?
Something like a modern a-frame cabin in the middle of the woods would be awesome! I'd built a remote recording studio and enjoy the peaceful nature sounds.
What do you wish you could tell yourself five years ago?
Don't compare yourself to others so much and try to enjoy the journey more instead of being laser-focused on a goal. Because once you've reached a goal you're already looking at another one. Stop caring so much about what others might think of you.
