Don't get me started...I've got stories...many.







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

Guitar is like drawing and painting with sound for me. I draw everyday. It gives me expression beyond words.

What is your music dream?

To create guitar passages that will help people understand themselves and those around them better.

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

I would teach art to little I do now.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Transformers the movie soundtrack...good times.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

My favorites would be in no particular order Fleetwood Mac, The Cure, Hum, and Mew. I listen to these bands time and time again. I love lots of bands though. There are too many guitarists to name. I always listen for the interplay of guitar and drums.

What inspires you to make music?

Music holds the capacity to connect with people beyond the power of words . This draws me to write.

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

To embrace the struggle to be seen, loved , heard, whether anyone notices or not and once the struggle is accomplished...just be.

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

Like a wielder of secret fire...

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

I'm not caught up in the world much really. I think there are many talented musicians and there are so many songs we've never heard htat it would take a life age to hear them all. I try to improve in many things everyday. Sculpting guitar sounds and utilizing alternate tunings, finding new tones and sonics to adorn the instrument...these are the loves and affections of tone chasing.

What do you think of Drooble?

I dont know. I just got here. We'll see how it goes.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The expense of guitar gear these days for quality equipment is ridiculous.

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

Yes, by attending local shows, and fostering ne young talent as a guitar instructor.

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