1 minute, 48 seconds Read

The Soul Hackers is composed of John Birth, multi-instrumentalist and producer originally from Portugal, and Franco-Haitian singer songwriter Gaia, UK resident.

A virtual duo, John and Gaia are yet to meet in the real world. But…what is the real world?

‘Superstrong’ is their third Pop Rock single. It follows up ‘A razor through a big balloon’ and ‘White rabbits and motorcycles’.



So Gaia, you’ve never met John in real life, how does that work?

Very well actually! It has kind of become part of our creative process now to just exchange ideas online and not to know each other in real life. I think it has taken our creative process to heights that maybe we wouldn’t have reached if we had met. There is also a mysterious aura that surrounds somebody you’ve only met online which I think is kinda cool and leaves a lot of room for your imagination, which personally also fuels my creative process when we create songs together.

If you could have a superpower, what would you choose?

No hesitation, teleportation!!!


So John, you’ve never met Gaia in real life, how does that work?

Everything just fitted together effortlessly with us. Our method of work is as smooth as a baby´s behind. To me, it´s a sign from the Universe that you´re exactly with who you need to be. I love her sense of humour, commitment, voice and she´s a fast-paced and skilled lyricist. Sometimes we sound like two kids in an audio kindergarten. I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am that she found me online. A true gift from the cloud.

If you could have a superpower, what would you choose?

I do have a greedy imagination. I´d choose the superpower of choosing the superpower I require at any given moment.
