Daniel Williamson

Story

I like partying. Although becoming a parent to my son pretty much stopped that alcohol and drug fun in a shot. But he is all worth it. My story is probably the same as anyone elses in this existence, who's just trying to enjoy life, dodge illnesses somehow, and get shitloads of sex happening. We all have losses of loved ones. We all have happiness, love, anger, regret, peace, romance, and herpes. Life is fun. Way too short to not wanna live it a tad wild at times. I look forward to crisp butties with marmite, and mayo, and a fair few shots of Slivovica. :)

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

Music is always creating something in my head. What does it give me? It gives me a way of getting my side of a story heard, from my real life experiences. Get a pat on the back for it after a gig. Get compliments. However, if i just stood on a street corner, yelling out my shit, i would get sectioned. Put a guitar in my hands, and its totally accepted and i get praised for it.

What is your music dream?

My music dream is listening to 'November' by Max Richter, played live by Mari Samuelsen, while her, Penelope Cruz, my Eva, and a mid 90's Salma Hayek are all on me, and on each other. Its a nice dream indeed.

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

No more wars. Any world leader wanting to drop bombs on women, children, and babies should just be locked in a dark cell for eternity.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Freedom by Richie Havens

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I don't have favorites. I love all music equally.

What inspires you to make music?

I am inspired by what i see and feel in this short life.

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

Peace, romance, and love.

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

I feel aroused.

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

Less people trying to climb over each other on the fame shit ladder. Forget goals, fame, ego's, wealth. Just live your life and create sounds that you like. Never compare yourself to anyone else. Art is individual, so be the art. Stop trying to be like some pampered millionaire you see on a screen and live your own life. Bands and artists should know that nobody is better than anyone else in this game. Its a who you know thing for promotion, and for the financial success, its a luck thing.

What do you think of Drooble?

I am new here, but i am enjoying this. A friend recommended it, so here i am. I like it so far.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Nothing at all. If it made me frustrated, or gave me any negativity at all, i wouldn't be a musician. Being a musician is fun. Keeps me young in my brain. Keeps me in the parties.

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

Yes, i like checking out local bands and artists.

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

I have no idea.
