I'm so excited to work with Miri on her debut album "Golden". There is so much talent, unforgettable melodies and great lyrics to capture. This is what Miri says about her music:
"My name is Miri Yuste and I'm a 16 year old girl who is passionate about music. I've loved singing and performing since I can remember. Growing up I learnt how to play piano and guitar. When I was 13, I wrote my first song. Now it's three years later, and I've written many more. I have been given the chance to record some of them with Bogdan for my first album 'Golden'.
Music to me is time for myself. It is how I express what I'm feeling or going through in my own way. I am happiest when I am sat at my piano singing. Music is a huge part of who I am and I couldn't imagine my life without it.
What started out as a hobby has now developed into something I hope to pursue as a career. I am so excited to share my music with everyone and I'm grateful to Bogdan for giving me the opportunity to do so."

As always it is a great pleasure to work with talented musicians. Currently I work together with singer and songwriter Trent Ronne on his first EP. This is what Trent says about his music:
"My name is Trent. I’m a musician/music producer from South Africa. I write, compose and perform my own songs. My style is an Electro-Acoustic Pop sound. I utilise acoustic instruments like the Grand Piano and the Guitar with a mix of Electronic Synths, led with Orchestral Percussion or Electronic Drum Pads. When I write a song, I always try to convey emotion with both the music and the lyrics telling the story in different ways. In one of my upcoming songs, “Sunshine” I play the piano in an arpeggio, illustrating the rush of life and lyrically, I talk about how I overcome obstacles that are in-front of me, to reach my final goals. I got a lot more songs coming and trust me, you will love every single one!"
