How did you get your start?
I got my start in music by family: my mother was a lead singer at a local cover band and passed her passion of music on to No Sugar/Gaby. At the age of 4 she wanted to become a drummer and she learned drums and piano. It was in 2005 that i got professional lessons at DJ School Netherlands. Then things went fast!
