What inspires you to make music?

A wonderful poem, a beautiful lady, a good or a bad event, but many times inspiration comes to me suddenly without any reason, sometimes into my sleep!

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

Be always sensitive, love every creature on Earth, life is the most beautiful gift that God gave us, let's live wonderful, without wars, fights and hate!

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

I am full of emotions because every moment I feel like the same like the lyricist and the composer when they were writing that song or Opera aria. Also, I feel that me and all the audiences we are one! Many times when the song is very romantic, some people on the seats are crying by emotion! Togather with me!

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

Every time in music history has his own importance. Nowadays because of the development of technology, internet, social medias, there exist a huge number of artists independante mostly, so it is very difficult the audience people to discaver the real talents. Also, Music Industry promots the good ones but not the best ones of those talents, because they want to replace them easyly. For example it is very difficult to find again like one as Pavaroti, or Elvis, or Sinatra. From the other way, in nowadays, every one can publish his work with no paying any money. About the music, I have my onw slogan, "There is not exist good or bud music, there exists only good or bad musicians"! The only thing that it may be could be impoved is the level of knowlege in music of audience people. In that way audiecne people could have the posibility to critical about what or whom is the good and what or whom is the best.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's a good idea, but I don't still know yet if really helps musicians, because I just signed in on it! Of course is a good "weapon" for anyone to fight for his dreams!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The lies, the fake and awful people, Managers, Producers, Companies..etc. The fact that many artists are using their body for doing career. The fact that nobody asks who you are or how good are you, but, whom send you to him!

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

Wherever I can, Yes. Also, I give some help using my profiles in social medias promoting all the artistic events in my local, and always have something good to say to the young artists!

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

Flexibility and Ability on using the new technology. Charisma for making connections. Good character and the most important, luck!

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