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

Music to me is breath. It can be noted that even some of the most unreachable of people, such as senior citizens, who are practically catatonic, will react and become animated when they hear their favorite music. The best compliment I have ever received, was from a fan's daughter after his death. she said he just wanted to hear my CD when he was on his death bed. You can't do better than that.... nuff said

What is your music dream?

I want to be on stage again, singing and having fun, expressing myself, and telling our stories. It is communication, it's feeling, it's the way we become human.

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

I would require every nation to put down their weapons and pick up instruments, and instead of war, have music sharing from every nation.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Heart Of Gold Neil Diamond

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Janis Joplin, obviously, Etta James, Shemekia Copeland, Trudy Lynn, CeCe James, Billie Holiday. Nina Simone, KoKo Taylor, and Ruth Brown

What inspires you to make music?

Just life

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

That the Blues is alright!

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

I feel electric, every single pore on my body, every body part from my head to my toes is tingling and quaking

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

I think we need to move with the times, move into the modern days, like stream more, but also reach out more. It can become impersonal when you stream, nameless and impersonal. Nothing like a live audience you can see and hear.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it rocks!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Just the pace it moves... in blues so slow

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

I used to, now I might again

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

I think a good singing, radio, and announcer talent and voice. Nowadays you have to keep them entertain not only with their eyes but sometimes only with their ears
