What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is my life. Everything I do revolves around writing, playing & performing music.

What is your music dream?

A wider, worldwide audience for the songs my band, "Actress" & my self have written & performed. I've achieved many of my musical goals over the last 30 years or so... I suppose the only one I have my sights set on now, is to play the SwedenRock Festival.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I would make it more fair for music artists to get paid for their art. online outlets like iTunes & Spotify virtually rape the music artists.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"All The Kids On The Street" by the Hollywood Stars. I can still remember the first time I heard it on AM radio. I was maybe 13 years old. Fast forward and now I have become friends with the members of that band & have been asked to cover this very same song. I am totally honored to do so!

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I live & die by my 70's Glam era roots... Hollywood Stars, KISS, Angel, The Sweet, Starz, The Babys, the New York Dolls, etc. and I'm totally blessed to have become friends & contemporaries with the very musicians that inspired me to play in the first place.

What inspires you to make music?

The feeling I get, when I get on stage, just can't be beat! The adrenaline kicks in and it's "Rock Star Heaven"!

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Do what you want to do, and if it makes you happy, Don't ever let anyone make you stop.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

It's the most exciting feeling in the world.. No matter if it's in front of 3 people, or 3,000 people.. I've done both.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

A fairness to musicians who should be PAID for their art. Bands should be paid for their performances, And paid for their music. Bars would be empty without us. They need to share the money derived from selling drinks, etc. as without us to draw patrons in, they wouldn't be selling any drinks.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's an interesting "Science Experiment" , I'm willing to participate & see what the benefits are.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Being treated like a free jukebox & not being fairly compensated.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Absolutely! I go out, I attend other band's gigs, I make sure my band and I contribute to the health of our local Las Vegas & L.A. music scenes.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Originality. the world already had a Led Zeppelin, or a Guns N' Roses. Just do your best to be the best "YOU" you can be.
