Meeting my heroes, APOCALYPTICA!!!

#DREAMCOMETRUE!!!!

I recently had the unbelievably huge privilege of meeting Eicca and Mikko from my all-time FAVOURITE band, Apocalyptica, after their concert in Guelph!! The guys were here as part of a mini-tour of Canada that culminated with their performance at Heavy MTL this weekend.

For those of you who have heard me talk about my biggest musical influences in interviews before, it’s no secret that Apocalyptica is by far the band that has been my greatest inspiration as an artist, so meeting them was quite literally a dream come true! It’s always extremely exciting to get a chance to see Apocalyptica perform in Canada, and their show was beyond incredible, but it was an true honour to meet the artists that I regard as my musical heroes! They were so kind, friendly and even took the time to take a picture with me, which made the experience even more unforgettable! Add to that the fact that Mikko also happens to be my favourite drummer in the whole world (and, I must say, he’s also so sweet and even more handsome in person! :P), and it definitely takes the cake as the best concert-going experience EVER!

Cello Lessons!

I recently had my first-ever mini-lesson on my favourite instrument, the cello! Those of you who have heard what a huge Apocalyptica fan I am can probably imagine how excited I was to try this! I have to admit, I was like a kid in a candy store!

What do you think, should my heroes, Apocalyptica, make some room for me in their lineup? πŸ˜›
