Musician. Lightworker. Treehugger. Activist. Give peace a chance. So Paris Jackson shares his profile on Instagram. At L’Officiel Italia he describes himself as «a person with a kind, honest, loyal, motivated, passionate heart, with positive energy and frequency. I’m also a little geek, with a passion for “Star Wars”, “The Lord of the Rings”, “Harry Potter” and all the Marvel movies. I would like to be remembered for my commitment – until death – towards the environment, animals and human and civil rights. In addition to someone who has always struggled to change the system. Power to the people! “Born in Beverly Hills, California, Paris is a free spirit. Independence gained after years of struggle against obsessive intrusion into one’s life, given the legacy of one of the most influential families in music history and in particular of his father Michael Jackson . Her career began as a model, represented by IMG Models, the same as Gisele Bündchen, Hailey Baldwin, Gigi and Bella Hadid , and then expanded to music, television and cinema.«Music is like the air I breathe, it is awareness, it is being able to create something bigger than me, it is a way to express myself, and externalize what I feel inside. It is difficult to describe these sensations in words, but the first that comes to my mind is gratitude, gratitude for being able to be part of this world. I don’t know how my songs are born, I only know that I feel the need to get them out, and every time it happens it is an act of purification. I like writing rock songs, because that’s what I love. But I’m also good at writing sad music, acoustic and folk pieces ». With his partner, Gabriel Glenn, he formed the band The Soundflowers.«Before Gabriel, I have never had such a profound collaboration with anyone, our creations are born naturally, develop organically. We are working on our first album, we have a lot of material, I think it could be ready next autumn. Meeting Gabriel was a revelation, thanks to him I discovered that I was born a musician, music makes me happy, makes me feel good and therefore I have no choice but to continue playing and singing » .
