Music is always been My passion and my hobby. I believed that i have the talent for making and performing an amazing music, and also I believed that I can make people happy for listening to the music I was performing. I hope I got the chance to bring joy for everyone and bring pride to Indonesia's image.
I've been doing music for 6 years now, started out by writing songs in my room and playing them in school talent shows, then I started to learn production and recording in high school. It was only last year when I started releasing music as cellosux; a project that I've been keeping for myself the past 2 years. I might not understand the subtle intricacies of being a singer but I do know that I'm very proud of my songwriting skills. I'm the type of person who keeps a lot to himself and I feel that I can only pour out my feelings in my lyrics. I want to tell a story, a story of how I learned to be vulnerable and accepting of the type of person I am. I've been working on an EP called 'Vulnerability'. I produce and write all of my music as I have a very specific sound that I want and it lead me to finding a small loyal audience who's been there for me since my first release. I really want to get my music on a global level as I believe that I have that potential to connect with people my age with the stories that i tell from my music.
I want to dig my potential more like i dig some treasure point. I wanna know how big my work would be. And the most important thing i wanna make Indonesia proud to have me. Everything happens, just write and sing it!
I wanted to be a singer and songwriter since I was 3 years old. Music is my biggest passion! I really want to share my life and story through my music that I wrote, to as many people as I could. I believe God gave this talent and passion for a reason. I hope ICINC could make my dreams come true.
I want to inspire people with my music and show to the world that music is very powerful. You don’t need to know someone personally to touch their hearts, but instead music speaks. Music have been my passion since I was a kid and these past years I have improved my music skills and I hope that in near time I can write my own original. Thank you so much for this opportunity! I hope I can have the chance to show the world what I’m capable of :)
I’ve been pursuing my musical career since I was young. In between, my genres switch often to resonates the truest sound within my heart. Finding a new home in the soul/R&B genre has broadened my inspiration and goals to introduce my music to a wider mass. Coming from a small city, I aim to introduce my music as massive as possible so my songs, voices, and lyrics could touch more hearts, minds, and thoughts.
