Inteview with Jelle Bot (@jellebot)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I grew up with music, my mom always used to sing in a band and my dad was traveling through the country as a bass guitarist. I was always playing instruments such as the piano and guitar. My dad passed away 5 years ago and for me, this was a turning point to put more focus on my music so I could have a way to process my emotions. Then I also won a number 1 Golden Dor Award for app design and found a way to combine music with design. 

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

I won a Golden Dot Award, I’ve collaborated with a DJ and had my first featuring song in Spotify. I’ve received a lot of invites for live performances and performed at weddings and parties. I’m working in a design agency where we have multiple apps and software running in our own business. 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Always know when to say no. Stay close to your intuition and let no-one keep you for blocking your dreams. Even though people will say you not going to make it, show them you will. Use your talent as a way to translate your emotions. 

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My dad. As I already mentioned before he was always my inspiration to start with music. After he passed away my dream to perform and travel through the country just as he grew even bigger. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Right now on Instagram I’m sharing my emotions with other people and doing live room sessions to share my music and covers. I’m also helping a lot of people with my designs to help them grow a business or solve their problems.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

Where words fail, music speaks. Especially when my dad passed away I really found a way to translate my emotions through music. Sometimes words are just not enough or sometimes there aren’t words for a specific situation. Music will always do the speaking for you when words fail.
