Zedd: "Well, I grew up in Germany, I was born in Russia. I moved to Germany when I was about 3, so I basically spent the time that I could remember in Germany. My parents both played instruments. When I was four I basically started to properly play the piano and write my own songs when I was five.
"I didn't do sheet music, I learned to play the piano, I played songs by sheets but I never really liked to do that. I was never really skilled at reading music sheets. I just used to make a song everyday and when my parents would come back from work that would be my daily procedure, to show them a song I made one day. Thats what I did every day."
