What inspires you to make music?

Experiences, Science Fiction, Tone Chasing

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

Don't limit yourself to one particular way . It's ok to mix styles and create your own thing .

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

Energetic and at ease

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

I think social media has a huge impact and a lot of players seem to be leaning towards content creation rather than just going to a studio and recording songs or albums. I think by allowing all access to everything in the creative process deviates from the actual work itself at least in my experience.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far good .

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Overanalyzing my work and not being able to categorize it. It's an industry of categories and sometimes I want to play bombastic and sometimes I don't so am I a metal guy or a jazz guy or whatever and it's frustrating to not be able to have one category especially when trying to find an audience.

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

If it's a band that resonates with me I'll travel to see them .

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

If I knew I'd be bigger lol .

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

Me for starters . Give it a listen . I don't know too many others maybe a Santana tribute band in New Jersey called Shaman. Like listening to vintage Santana again .
