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

Music is sometimes an escape and other times it's a deep dive into our own thoughts. For me it's a way to tell my story and be myself.

What is your music dream?

My music dream is to help people through what I have created.

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

I would like to change the amount of negatives in the world. It feels like everyone gets down way too easily and cares little about doing what they can to improve their happiness and their lives.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen has always been one of the most impressive songs I have ever heard.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

It varies with time period and genre but the artists that have influenced me the most I would say are Jon Bellion, J. Cole, Journey, The Neighbouhood, and Linkin Park.

What inspires you to make music?

Music saved my life and in a way raised me. If i could do that for just one person I would feel like I have done my job.

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

To be yourself. Not a reflection of what you see around you.

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

It feels amazing. It's almost like it's not even me up there. It's just pure emotion and adrenaline.

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

I think music needs to be more honest.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think It's a wonderful platform and I'm glad to have discovered it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The lack of understanding that some consumers have for the art form. I think more time should get put into actually listening to what is being projected in every track.

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

I try to support as many artists as I can but working as much as I do I don't get to go out to physically see them as much as I'd like to.

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

Sadly being a meme helps but I think if you love what you create and are passionate about it then other people will see that and give you the time.

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

Mad Squablz is a big one. Lawrence definitely deserves a listen.
