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

Music gives me a release from the stress and grind of life. It gives me an avenue to express myself in a way I otherwise wouldn't be able to.

What is your music dream?

Used to be that I would be big and famous, but now I just want to be able to speak to one person through my music. Music is healing for the soul and if my music can do that for just one person, my dream is fulfilled.

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

Getting rid of 80's pop music, then politicians.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

AC/DC and Queen are big, but I also enjoy some Jesus Culture, MercyMe, Newsboys as well.

What inspires you to make music?

Life

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

No message really, I communicate what's on my heart and if that speaks to someone else then that's great. I'm not trying to send any message in particular, just expressing myself at any given moment.

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

Excited! I don't get nervous while performing honestly, I get nervous during rehearsals

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

Better exposure for local bands would be nice. You hear local stations playing the big guys all the time, but not a lot of locals getting airtime.

What do you think of Drooble?

Just started using it *shurgs*

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My inability to play music

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

I want to but as a husband and father it's difficult to get out and support musicians when they mainly play in bars, etc.

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

A uniqueness, so many want to be or sound like someone big, well they are big because of their sound or style sure, but that's not going to help you. They got that way because when they started it was unique and different. You have to be unique and different if you want to be heard, otherwise you are just another pebble on the shoreline.
