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

Music to me is all. It gives me great pleasure to be creative in my studio working on different genres, and the sweetest part is not knowing what the next project will be.

What is your music dream?

To be a top producer in Hollywood, working with great artists producing soundtracks to movies. That would be sweeeeeeet.

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

Close down succer.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Man in the wilderness by Styx. Great track.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Kansas, Styx Wishbone Ash, Transatlantic, Spocks beard, Jethro Tull.

What inspires you to make music?

To one day be able to leave music hostile Norway, and buy a big house in Los Angeles.

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

No matter what kind of music you produce there is always an audience willing to hear and support you. Never give up on your dream.

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

Devotion to what I do, and expectation.

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

It is in no way an easy task to take on a life as an artist, and that has a lot to do with money to promote your products. It is easier to play soccer and earn a million bucks.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is a great platform :-) You get positive feedback from real music loving people, and you get to be played on radio :-) That is just sweet.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Nothing really.

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

Trying to be positive and stay in touch with what goes on in our local community.

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

Do not share unless you have your shit together. If music is what you want to do with your life, make sure the product is proper mixed and mastered before releasing.

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