Elle Varner: “I think a mentor – someone you can look up to or someone who can help you through – is one of the most important things.”

Ludwig Göransson: “Focus on yourself and try to find you own sound. It’s hard to find your own sound and style when you’re young.”

Gabriel Aldort: “Your intention as a performer has to come from a pure place. If you’re not doing it for the right reasons, people sniff out the insincerity of your performance.”
