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

Music is my life.

What is your music dream?

Continue to continue by simply doing what I love to do since I was a child.

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

Lots of peace, lots of love and lots of music.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Eruption by Van Halen.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

The Beatles, Toto, Van Halen.

What inspires you to make music?

I feel good about myself.

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

More than a message, it is more a "who knows if the listener will like it" I hope my music somehow "reaches" the listener.

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

The first few times I was a little nervous, tense. Then after starting, already after the first, second song, I realize that I don't want to get off the stage anymore!

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

I believe that today, with the internet, the various social networks etc, it is easier to make yourself known or to make known your work, what you do. Before if you wanted to have a song played by a producer or a person in charge, you had to send your Demo Tape by mail, with the hope that someone would listen to it.

What do you think of Drooble?

I love this platform! I met many new friends and colleagues from the other side of the world!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Currently when I can't close a song because maybe I can't find the missing part, maybe at that moment I'm not very inspired. Then the sound, I have always been looking for my sound, the perfect sound for me that I think I will never find, but I think it's right!

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

Not currently, maybe before.

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

I have always believed in "being in the right place at the right time"

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

Mmm ... The fantastic artists for me are the famous ones at the international level that we all know. They are the ones I listen to every day since I was a child, I don't think they need any introduction!
