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

It's peace for my soul. It gives me focus on something calming and sweet instead of the problems facing myself, my family and the world.

What is your music dream?

I'm living my music dream - I get to play live every weekend. I don't make much money - most times none, but it doesn't matter to me. I have a great day job, so I am fortunate enough to get to play music strictly for fun. I love it and those listening love it too - it really shows when you're not stressed to keep the gig.

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

I would rid the United States of all current politicians and start over with a brand new group of good and honest people who love their country and its people.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

House of the Rising Sun - Eric Burden and the Animals

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

There are many, but I tend to lean toward acoustic artists, so probably James Taylor, Paul Simon, John Mayer and Ed Sheeran - to name but a few.

What inspires you to make music?

My wife, my family, my friends and my life.

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

It's all about love and passion

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

Absolutely exhilarated!

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

For the most part, probably the pay. However, from a realistic point of view, we are not a NEEDED commodity. Although, neither are sports figures or actors.

What do you think of Drooble?

Still new here, so not sure yet. However, it seems pretty cool what I've seen so far.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Nothing any more. I used to be frustrated about not getting a fair shot at the big leagues. However, I no longer care about that. I've learned to enjoy the time I get to perform when it's available. I do it now for fun only, not because I HAVE to.

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

Yes when I can. I go out and see some of my favorite musicians and sometimes, when possible, sit in too.

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

I don't know the answer to this one.

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