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

Music is my alternate personality, total freedom, every song I ever heard is a piece of artists souls who put them selves out there, that to me make connections to my own and gives the energy and confidence to explore my own soul and the music thats in me, I write songs, looking to create the one song Ive been chasing since I first picked up a guitar, first time I turned on a keyboard, first time I banged on skins, havent found it yet, the search continues

What is your music dream?

To be someday looked backed on and someday understood, to have a music archeologist someday to dig up a song I wrote and say to someone "listen to this"

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

End hate and unacceptance

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath, my dad played it all the time and used to turn it up loud and air perform it to me

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Black Sabbath both Ozzy and Dio years, just about all 70s, 80s and 90s metal, rock and blues,

What inspires you to make music?

Every song I have and will listen too

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

Have fun, you dont have to be the best to put it out there, If you have just one person that appreciates that part or parts of you your willing to share than your succesful

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

Thats a hard one for me, I have played live a few times and have a few live tracks, but Ive been told I need to engage more with an audience

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

I dont know about improvements, I think the more technical musicians become the less naturality less creative and souless it becomes, music has to be felt physically through the instruments, energy from the physical soul and heart, when I watch a musician play I mean really play its the looks and movements they are projecting the uphoric faces they have on, its a beautiful thing in my opinon, less technology and more rawness would be an improvement

What do you think of Drooble?

Im not sure about the karma point system yet, I dont have fans dont know that many musicians, Im basically a lone gunman, im not that skilled with a computer, so far me I see some difficulties, but I love the idea of this,

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Broken strings, sour notes, doing somethings over and over, my lack of knowledge producing and recording, the sound of my own voice

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

I live in a small town of just a few hundred people, 26m south of canada 101m northwest of spokane wa, im pretty much isolated, I tend to intimidate other musicians in my area because of some of my styles, ill get together with other musicians but they tend to frown when i crank up the distortion and reverb, theyre banjoes fiddles and harps dont seem to be able to keep so it gets difficult

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

I dont know about qualities, I believe luck has a lot to do with getting music out there, I mean if one gets lucky enough to be heard by someone who thinks the music is commercially viable and has resources to put it out there than they have a shot as long as fans are respected and engaged, Platforms like Drooble are a good idea for musicians, but some sites get to greedy and want to charge for every little movement of a song, as long as platforms dont get to money hungry and bunkrupt musicians, they could do alot for musicians out there trying
