My dreams

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. 

A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

 Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.

Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.

Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible.

When I was little and running on the race track at school, I always stopped and waited for all the other kids so we could run together even though I knew (and everybody else knew) that I could run much faster than all of them! I pretended to read slowly so I could “wait” for everyone else who couldn’t read as fast as I could! When my friends were short I pretended that I was short too and if my friend was sad I pretended to be unhappy. I could go on and on about all the ways I have limited myself, my whole life, by “waiting” for people. And the only thing that I’ve ever received in return is people thinking that they are faster than me, people thinking that they can make me feel bad about myself just because I let them and people thinking that I have to do whatever they say I should do. My mother used to teach me “Cinderella is a perfect example to be” but I have learned that Cinderella can go fuck herself, I’m not waiting for anybody, anymore! I’m going to run as fast as I can, fly as high as I can, I am going to soar and if you want you can come with me! But I’m not waiting for you anymore.

Bienmusic background

If I’m gonna tell a real story, I’m gonna start with my name.

I’m Bien, Bien is a french name means “very Good”. I came from a small town called Majengo in Mombasa(Kenya).

I am not trying to give an image of a fairytale, perfect, everything else, I am just being myself.
I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few.

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious in Music.

I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.



Leadership is not a popularity contest; it’s about leaving your ego at the door. The name of the game is to lead without a title.

You get a lot of who you are as a musician across through the music you write. If you’re writing your own music, then it’s important to be really honest.

  1. Bienmusic is upcoming Musician

I think the main focus as a musician should be to play the music you love to play, and the rest is going to come naturally.

It takes a lot of courage, when everyone is asking you what you want to do, if you say that you want to be a musician or an actor; people can be very condescending and say, ‘Oh, that’s so sweet, good luck with that!’ It can be very frustrating.
