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

Music is like the breath in my lungs. I started songwriting when I was 15, and ever since, I can't imagine doing anything else with my life.

What is your music dream?

I want to be a singer-songwriter in a groove metal band.

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

Revive 2012 metalcore!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Already Over by Red

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I love listening to Demon Hunter and Flyleaf. I write like Write This Down and The Letter Black.

What inspires you to make music?

Inspiration strikes at random moments. I write my best songs when I type on an iPad and hear the clicking of the buttons in the background.

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

With every song, I reveal a piece of myself that I hope reaches others like me.

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


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

Musicians are too caught up in politics. They need to realize that their songs are meant to reach people's hearts first and heads second. If you go straight for the mind, you never truly change people's hearts.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's slick web design and ease of use make it appealing. I love how open the community is!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not playing an instrument well as a songwriter is infuriating.

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

There is no local metal scene... It's a small town.

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

Be open to changing your sound to fit the audience you have instead of the audience you wish you had. You may be surprised who likes your music.

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

While typing in influences, Write This Down didn't pop up. I like them a lot. Love and Death is good, too.
