About me:

My story is short because it's writing now: I want to make the arts and music a daily basis of all kids and young people in the world.







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

It's the best way of expression and its language is universal and unique. Music gives everybody the possibility to feel comfortable with their own selfs and to believe in themselves, and that's why everybody dances or claps or sings along when they hear music.

What is your music dream?

I want to inspire people all over the world with my music.

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

Education - it's not that big point, but it's so important.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I remember hearing the new wave band A-ha back in time. When I was 5 my favourite song was "Summer Moved On".

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Many bands have been special to me at some point. Remember loving rock and metal bands like Metallica, Megadeth, AC/DC, Slayer and Disturbed, but I love not less pop artists and groups like The 1975, OneRepublic, The Weeknd, Maroon 5 and such.

What inspires you to make music?

Well it's funny because for different arts inspiration comes to me from very different places and situations. For example when I am inspired to write poetry or plays, I am often sad or in some apathetic mood, but music goes different. When I'm about to write a song, I go to the mall, or in the park, or even in a bar, because those who are there - many people, happy and very active at the time, are inspiring me. So - I get inspiration from the people to write music for the people.

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

Love and respect. We, all of us, gotta return the good and the holy in our communication.

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

I feel the music and feel very happy to interact with people, to make them sing or dance and to see them smiling. In that moment I know exactly why I am here.

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

Today's things are the easiest for musicians. No, seriously - only 20 years ago you actually have to be rich to have studio equipment and mics and stuff, but nowadays if you have an idea, you could just plug your guitar and record it digitally for like 2 minutes. We also have internet - a place where you can find thousands of music lessons for every instrument and a software for every kind of music recording. We have music SHARING platforms like this one here, so there's even a chance for everybody to be heard, not needing any other distribution. All musicians have to do is writing songs. So go on everybody!

What do you think of Drooble?

I love it. I think what stands before it is only future.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That sexuality is becoming the main focus in modern pop music.

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

I do, although I'm not a part of it. I got friends that play in some of the bands there and I often go to their concerts, spread the word about them and pay entrance. :D Also once I gave guitar lessons to a boy that formed a band later and they are pretty popular among these performers.

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