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

Music is like breathing to me it is a natural function that I need to perform everyday to be me, to exist. The joy of feeling the music that can change my mood and movement and have the same effect on other people. It is a creative process that starts with a blank track that I never know where it will lead me and how it will end up.

What is your music dream?

My music dream is to be able to make a living from making music and to use my money to make other's lives better.

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

I would start with changing the balance of power from the 1% of the world who hold 47% of the money power and revert it. No more poverty and people dying from lack of medicines.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I feel Love - Donna Summer

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Eurythmics, Human League, Pink Floyd, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Rag and Bone Man, Adele

What inspires you to make music?

If I don't it is like missing a part of myself, I don't feel complete without it. It is a creative process that I don't have any control over.

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

Everybody has a natural talent within them and if they just tapped into it instead of the Rat Race they would experience a better existence.

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

I suffer from depression and anxiety which is why I love being a music producer that can create in the comfort of my own space and yet my music can engage with millions of people without me being present.

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

I believe that there are thousands of amazing singers, song writers and musicians that are being prevented from having a presence as the industry is dominated by the big few. I would like to see more acts available on mainstream radio so that people can be exposed to more experiences and great performers.

What do you think of Drooble?

Love, Love Love it

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The thousands of talented people who don't get a chance because big money dominates the charts.

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

I always go to see local groups and visiting bands from my childhood.

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

Sadly a major money backer and major influencer.
