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

Music is oxygen to me. I cannot imagine life without. Everything emotion worth feeling can be felt through music.

What is your music dream?

I just want to be known as a songwriter. I have always dreamed of being a recording artist, but I took a break from gigging to be a Dad. I am catching up later in life, so the young faces that Nashville looks for doesn't look like mine. But I love playing for the folks in my home state. Just being locally known as an artist is fine with me. But I would love nothing more than to make a living writing.

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

Wow. If there was ever a song that could be written to bring peace to this polarizing time I would write it.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

The first I remember ever getting chills from was Home Sweet Home, played on a banjo by the kid down the street.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Steve Earle, Springsteen, Isbell, Cole Chaney, the storytellers

What inspires you to make music?

Just the hope that it can bring joy to others in some way

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

Peace. Love. History. Jesus

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

Total Adrenaline Rush (most times). When they are digging it, nothing better.

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

Tough. On one hand the music available to us is overwhelming and a lot like drinking out of a fire house. That can be good and bad. Good that its accessible, but bad in that it is so hard to sift through it all to find the good stuff. Radio has turned into playlist curators and I am just not sure that system is allowing the best music in. Only the songs getting into the main playlists are able to earn anything at all. There is so much competition out there these days it's harder than it ever was to crack into the business. Of course, most everyone agrees that country radio today is broken, with only a select few exceptions.

What do you think of Drooble?

so far so good

What frustrates you most as a musician?

no responses from messages, emails, or voice mails.

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

Sure, we always try to catch local shows when I'm not in them.

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

Marketing skills. Social Media Skills. A huge supportive fan base to start with that is willing to travel. Good music is a given, most everyone has some of that

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

Cole Chaney!
