    Up High with Kaine Francesco

    Up High with Kaine Francesco

    We've been going through some hectic times these last few weeks due to the corona virus pandemic 🌎. Hospitals are overwhelmed with the growing amount of patients, the Berlin streets seem deserted, pubs and clubs are closing, tubes are empty, more people work from home and for whatever reason, there is a shortage of toilet paper in the supermarkets. While I'm trying to make sense out of this madness myself, I'm hoping to brighten up your day today by sharing Kaine Francesco's story. I met Kaine during my master's in London a few years ago. He is an independent musician and songwriter, his debut album Up High was released in 2018, last year his new EP The Channel came out. Among many things, in this episode Kaine speaks about growing up in England and in France, how different female musicians influenced his songwriting and what it takes to create an album. His story might inspire those who have a creative idea or a dream, but don't know where to start or how to bring it to life. Kaine guides you through his process of becoming a musician, from writing down songs, recording them to actually performing them on stage and hearing them being played on the radio. But I think the most important thing I took away from our conversation is that no matter what obstacles life throws along your way, even if you question your worth as an artist at one point, the most important thing is to keep creating art and doing what you love. It all works out in the end. Because HOME, as always, is being authentically, unapologetically you. I hope you enjoy.

    Through the Lens of: Justin Moya Montenegro

    Through the Lens of: Justin Moya Montenegro

    In 2012 I spent six months in Costa Rica doing voluntary service at my local school. I haven’t been back to the country since, but I still think back filled with nostalgia. I remember the warmth of the ticos, the thick hot air and the rich greenness at every corner. One time this February I spoke on the phone to one of my former students, the 20-year-old Justin, who aspires to become a big name in fashion photography. We stayed in touch over the years, so I called him up one evening to do an interview. We spoke about many things…How his bicultural background influences his work, why he thinks art is not valued in Costa Rica, why he should have followed his gut when choosing a career and how despite his struggle with mental health he never stopped doing art. This is the first time that Justin and I see and talk to each other in almost a decade. A situation that is doomed to be awkward…or is it? Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. You'll have to listen to figure it out. I hope you enjoy.

    Between Two Islands

    Between Two Islands

    The show "Between Two Islands" features the Irish writer, teacher and musician Bronagh Slevin. I interviewed Bronagh on a secluded, little beach in a small Sicilian town called Milazzo, where we spent the entire afternoon talking about the wonderful adventures of her life whilst listening to the sounds of waves in the background.







    Bronagh began her story by sharing personal details about growing up during The Troubles, her early desire to travel, which was propelled by her love for languages, and feeling a strong connection to water wherever she goes. Bronagh also tells how it takes balls to live in Sicily and reveals the key to finding your own place in a male-dominated mindset of the island. In spite of her initial struggle to adapt, she feels more at home in Sicily than ever. How did she manage to move past her loneliness? And why is Sicily Italy at its most for her? Make sure to listen until the end to find out.







    This conversation was incredibly interesting and enriching. I emailed Bronagh after reading an article of hers online, she wrote back, and there we were: recording her story on a beach in the north-east of Sicily. I hope you enjoy. I surely did. Music by Bronagh Slevin.

    That Girl

    That Girl

    A show about the Viennese singer Syannah. The 22-year-old speaks about self-doubt, how self-development courses helped her to go after her dream and the unrealistic expectations women face in the music industry. I sat down with the young songwriter to find out how she overcame her fears and societal expectations to achieve her goal. Besides, she shares why authenticity and being honest with her audience is what she wants to be remembered as, why Rachel Platten is her hero and how being on stage is the closest she's ever felt to being at home.Music credits: SyannahPhoto credit: Tobias Dellit
