Nice to meet you. My name is Marte.

I’m a songwriter, or at least trying to be one. I actually studied law as well as music (piano performance to be exact) but then decided that law and the corporate world weren’t really cutting it for me, so I decided to quit and attempt to be a fulltime musician. Right now I live in Milan (and I’m not planning to move anytime soon) with Mr. Songwriter and an annoying-but-very-cute beagle named Meg Sbattidog (Meg for short).

I love new beginnings (such as this blog), music (obviously), new music tech and gear, planners, productivity hacks and good food….especially good food in Milan, and especially especially good (actually more like fantastic!) pizza in Milan.

I also love Milan. Many think it’s chaotic and expensive but I really love it. It’s not just the fact that it’s a big city (for Italian standards at least). Milan just has this way of being alive, and making you feel at home. There are so many events and things to do in Milan that’s it’s just hard to keep up. But there are also little cozy cafés and special places where I just go to relax or grab a coffee with a friend. That’s actually just an expression, as I don’t actually drink coffee (one weird Italian).

Anyway, thank you for reading. I hope you stick around!
