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

Music and art is the great-great-grandmother of freedom of speech. When you feel something you have no words for, or you have something to say and no one is there to listen, it can always be expressed through music and art. It gives me resolve, structure, and voice, even if the voice has no words.

What is your music dream?

Communication and manifestation of self through sound.

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

Human perception.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

And You And I, Yes

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Dead Can Dance, Diamanda Galas. Einstürzende Neubauten, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Genesis (old Genesis, with Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Phil Collins, Anthony Phillips, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks)., and many others.

What inspires you to make music?

The process and outcome of self analytical reflections through aesthetic soundscapes and artistic manifestation.

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

How others interpret music is always a phenomenon to the creator. Music will always be interpreted differently by others regardless of intention. Being devoted to one's own self-expression is the most genuine approach and will always be embraced as so through the eyes and ears of the audience.

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

Depends on the audience.

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

The word musician has almost been segregated into its own class of people which is problematic. Everyone should be and is in heart and soul, a musician and artist. Music and art have evolved into fab, ego, monetary gain, and popularity which is also problematic. Art and music should be a basic shared foundation of all people. In a way, it has always been a shared foundation, yet consistently pushed to the sidelines as a hobby or a lesser priority in life. The overall improvement would consist of art and music as the sole and primary foundation to all societies so it can evolve into more than just listening pleasure.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far, it's ok, except that it was down for a month. Comments are editable, this is a plus, can't edit comments on SoundCloud, everybody makes typos. However song time markers are not clickable in comments, this should be added. I have noticed a few glitches, but nothing to make me walk away yet. One thing I have noticed about a lot of these music streaming sites (not just Drooble), is the large amount of 'musicians' and 'artists' with no content, ever. There should be a deadline of something reasonable like three months minimum to post some music for those signing up as artists or musicians. Otherwise, have fan accounts with no uploading allowed. The reason I bring this up is I have tried to find other musicians to follow and listen to, but most of them have no material and have been dormant for a long time. I have clicked on dozens of account pages with no music and inactive for a long time. So the short version, musician accounts post some material within around three months or get auto-deleted with the re-activate account option, and fans choose fan account. But once again, I see this on the other sites like SoundCloud as well, so it's not specific to Drooble.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The constant influence of outside musical influences and technical expectation of what is correct or properly defined as music always distracts away from pure unadulterated self-expression.

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

Not much of a local scene. Very rural. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Would be good to have places where independent local musicians and artists could perform and present their material, such as open mic nights. This is something that was once more available in larger cities I use to live in, yet would be more beneficial to smaller towns. The problem now is that most music scenes have been destroyed by political propaganda, political narratives, and fear-mongering, which leaves the future of music hanging by a thread with little hope of seeing a new dawn.

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

Know thyself and not worry about a larger audience.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

The Shakers. A local acoustic folk group from Nashville TN during the late 80's and early 90's.
