Damian Kovacs


Just a guy that loves expression through music, all kinds of genres.







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

Music is a way of making emotions tangible in the sense that feeling can be heard not just felt and when I can play something on the guitar and someone else can understand the emotions, feel them and find a connection with my piece of music I have done my job correctly. Music gives me absolute peace.

What is your music dream?

Get a degree is musical theory. Guitar performance. Maybe open my own shop or teach while playing in the underground music scene. If someone understands my goal and discovers me and I'm able to broaden my audience I will be happy.

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

No more abuse. Physical, verbal, mental. To all living creatures, even nature itself

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Linkin Park Leave out all the rest.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Tough one. Maybe Megosh, Ed Sheeran and John Mayer

What inspires you to make music?

The world is turning into a cold dark place and everything is being replaced by one form of technology or another. We need something real. Emotions. Beauty. Expression to remember we are still human. We will feel. Love and dream.

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

Being happy and carefree is the only way to truly express and find yourself.

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

Nervous and judged but at the end, amazing and incredibly happy.

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

The world wants everyone to have a 9-5 job and we are all taught that this is the way to live. If we choose music or art or any form of self expression it will be a hard life. We throw it away. We will never have stability. I wish that self expression was supported more. That the world accepted it as a profession like any other. When someone says I'm throwing my life away and I will never be stable or rich or have all these stupid material objects that people put too much value in, I say, "I would rather be happy than stable." but I know with happiness, hard work and determination and a bit of realism I will be perfectly stable

What do you think of Drooble?

Droodle is a very interesting idea to join a global community of musicians. I'm interested to see what I can learn and who I can meet.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

In my situation, not having access to musical equipment or funds to better the experience of my performance to my audience or whoever I play to.

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

I can't find my local scene, I hope droodle will help me. But in general I only ever download music legally and support artists. I never steal their work.

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

A real emotional basis for his or her songs, something people can identify with so that they can become his or her audience. They need a love for music. They mustn't be in it for fame or anything pretentious. They must be in the industry for their own self expression and their own pleasure. People will gravitate towards a genuine musician/artist.
