Debrah Scarlett - Cynical Youth
"I think a lot of people get very confused when they ask where and when I've lived here and there. I’ve kind of been like a yo-yo, moving back and forth," she says of a youth that saw her born in Switzerland in the summer of ’93, move to Norway at the turn of the millennium, back to Switzerland for her teenage years and back again to the town of Nittedal, Norway in 2014. Daughter to a Norwegian mother and a Swiss-Italian father, Debrah felt, as she puts it, "like an alien, different from those around me," and although she spoke several languages from a young age, never seemed to perfect any of them. "Music became my language," she says of the time. "It enabled me to truly express myself."
