Talent, passion, charisma, image and authenticity. Possess all of these qualities as an aspiring pop star and you’ve already won half of the battle. But, no matter how explosive your creative energy, you won’t make it to the big leagues if you’re an unguided missile. Electronic Music Production & Performance Bachelor student Rowan Edwards, aka Gozi, found out the hard way, after two years of “stumbling around in the dark” trying to find the right direction for his singing, songwriting and music production. He finally made the decision to hone his craft through three years at dBs Berlin – and he hasn’t looked back since!
Now at the end of his intensive degree – having brought so much to our school’s community – it felt only fitting that Gozi would go out with a bang. Delivering super-smooth vocals, catchy lyrics, vibing beats and a whole load of attitude, Gozi is the latest to perform for Studio Sessions. We can’t wait to see where his skill and dedication take him next!
Special mention to the backing vocalist and guitarist, fellow EMP Bachelor student Ricarda Fischer, and the drummer, Creative Music Production & Sound Engineering Bachelor student Telio Garfive, who made Gozi’s live set dreams a reality.

Behind the Scenes
“Spend three years really getting into your craft. There is nothing better, there is no other way to do it; believe in yourself, take yourself seriously and get yourself an education. Stay at school kids!”
