“Dreams are actually a reality, I’m doing what I am born to do. Now I am finally able to create the music I have always wanted to”
Currently, Defina lives in NYC. She finds this multi cultural, multi lingual city to be a source of inspiration ( as we do too!) In an interview with NR MAGAZINE , writer Marianna Michael writes: ” During her schooling in Sweden, differences between British and American English became a fascination. She stood by the fantastical inclination that she was “half-American”, and became adamant, and correct, that she would end up living in America. She’s quick to add “I love to hear different accents. I love to imitate people.” Accents, aside from music, are her forte.” Michael found Defina to be “mesmerising” and we agree.
