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

Music is like liquid Architecture to me. It has layers of interest from percussion to vocals. Creating music is such a pleasure that time flies when I'm in the middle of the process. When complete it can transport you to a whole another world. From chord textures to beautiful melodies it offers an escape from this hectic chaotic world.

What is your music dream?

To create interesting adventurous music that some people may enjoy.

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

Change the inequities between those that create without compensation versus those that simply use other people without contributing anything to society and being paid handsomely for it.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Probably either something from the Beach Boys like Good Vibrations or from the Beatles like Here Comes the Sun. Later on anything from Pink Floyd!

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

There are so many artists out there now. I have a huge range of bands that I follow. Anything from Kenny Chesney to Beck. Of course I love the oldies like the Eagles, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin. Some of the Smooth Jazz artists like Chieli Minucci from Special EFX has some great music out there.

What inspires you to make music?

Music has always been a part of my life. My dad used to play the Hammond organ when I was growing up and since his passing I always remember those days when I would play clarinet with him. He would play all of the standards so I got a taste of some of the great songs ever created. For a young boy growing up it was an unusual way to be introduced to music. When I make music now I think of those days and know my dad is smiling. It may not be as good as those old standards but it's fun trying!

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

As the music we create is based on real life experiences and world events we're simply trying to share the feelings and emotions from these occurrences.

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

When a song is going good in front of a crowd it's like an out of body experience for me. Everything in the universe is right!

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

Today's reality is that music can be obtained for free on streaming platforms that may not even be known to exist to the industry. I had a friend tell me how she listens to music and all I could do was say huh? What's that? There are always going to be bootleggers but today it seems to be out of control! We need to remind people how much work is involved in creating a song and that it's not right to think one can just find a way to get it for free!

What do you think of Drooble?

I'm new to this service and I haven't had enough time to evaluate it. I think it's a great service and I'll get back to you on this!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

How there's more people out there trying to make a buck on selling you things that you really don't need. Everything from Chord Charts to unneeded Legal Advice, are thrown at these young musicians who really can't afford it. They seem to be everywhere!

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

Absolutely! We try to see a show whenever we can. Whether it's in a bar or a local venue we're there! Of course we also tip the tip jar or buy the band's merchandise.

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

Just be sincere and honest. Good guys will prevail!

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

There are some great local bands here. Making Movies comes to mind. Mark Lowery, Shay Estes and Laura Chalk are all friends. I like Barefoot Souls to name a few.
