Meet Alessia, a 24-year-old from Italy.
“My friend and I used to go to parties with a reggaeton theme, then we thought it would be fun to make our own playlist that we could play at our home parties.”
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
I listened to a lot of rock and punk rock. We had lots of CDs of artists like Evanescence, Sum 41, Blink 182, Green Day and Avril Lavigne. I still listen to those albums sometimes and I think they're my all-time favorites.
What is the best concert you've ever been to?
Fedez in Trieste. It was an amazing and fun night.
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I don't play any instruments, but I do have an acoustic guitar. I always wanted to learn how to play it but never had the time.
Name your top 3 favorite artists and why?
My top 3 favorite artists are Avril Lavigne, Molly Sandén and Avicii. Avril was like an idol to me when I was a teenager. I really liked her rebellious style. Molly Sandén is quite a recent discovery. I started listening to some Swedish playlists when I moved to Sweden and that's how I found her. At first, I liked the rhythm of her songs but then I started to sing along and it's been useful to learn some Swedish as well. Avicii was just awesome. I love all his songs and I'm so sad that there won't be more songs.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
Let go by Avril Lavigne.
