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

Relief, We all struggle daily from the norms of life. Everyone needs an outlet. Music for me is that outlet. It not only helps me but it also lets me reach out to others that may feel the same way I have in the past.

I'm not greedy. I just want to be able to afford my rent and bills off of my music and touring. My dream is to one day be able to make that happen.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Architects to me are a big influence because of the meaning behind their material. There's no bull**** when it comes to what they are saying. I really only like music that makes me feel something. They are one of the only bands that have that feeling in their music still and I love it.

What inspires you to make music?

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

I feel like in that moment that there are no worries about life or whats going on. Its just a bunch of people in one place having a good time.

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

The limitations that have been put on musicians are just out of this world. It used to be that social media was a tool to connect to your audience. But now i have to pay to have my content viewed more? That's just insane. I've spent thousands of dollars on promotion, facebook ads, spotify playlist placement. All of that works... But the results are so low its almost not worth it. So the reality is you have to work more than your daily hours at your job just to get a little bit of notice. I feel like something could change with that. Take the limitations off or at least offer something a little less expensive. That's all I'm saying
