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

Music is many things. It gives me a way to communicate without having to say anything.

What is your music dream?

Make music that's life-giving.

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

Loving others unconditionally.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

This is your life by Switchfoot

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Kaki King, Josh Garrels, Switchfoot, Tom Misch, (there's more of course)

What inspires you to make music?

Morbid but true, often my music is birthed out of troubled times, but in the face of hope in the future.

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

Faith, hope and love remain. Also, it's good to chill and take in the moment.

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

Nervous to be honest. I'm not the most natural performer. Still love playing with others.

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

Music as an industry is tough. I know and have heard so many talented musicians, but nobody really knows them. Not having to hear the same songs and only the top 10 or whatever on the radio would be great. The quality of music on radio would be much better.

What do you think of Drooble?

Not sure, just joined recently.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

People forget that it takes a lot of practice, not just talent.

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

Have some musos that I know that I'll support at their gigs. Buy their music. Word of mouth is underestimated.

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

Not that I agree completely, buy by observation, willing to change yourself to be more marketable and trending (mixed feelings about this, obviously). Willing to persevere and be consistent.

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

Josh Garrels, 340ml, Erik Mongrain.
