What inspires you to make music?


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

It depends on what song. Sometimes it is hope. Sometimes it is warning. Sometimes it is praise. Sometimes it is love. Sometimes it is joy. Sometimes it is sorrow. Sometimes it is peace. Sometimes it is a cry for help.

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

The same way i feel when performing in private.

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

I have no idea what this question refers to.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it is a great concept, but needs to market better in order to attract more musicians. There is no one local of my genres here, and I am in a major metropolitan area.

Lack of time and space to work on a song as I wish to.

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

I used to, but cannot now with my current work hours.

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

A good head for marketing and either a lot of money or a friend with a lot of money willing to spend it on them.
