Music is integral to my being and lyrics go hand-in-hand with that. It's an involuntary thing and it seems to be in my veins. pulsing away and surging every so often. It gives me an outlet, pleasure, a reason to move. It opens up worlds of inspiration and longing and enables the meeting of countless souls via serendipity. I AM IN LOVE WITH IT.

I vibe off it and love it. The adrenaline rush is pretty unique and the buzz afterwards is like nothing else. that's why we all do it, right? I prefer to be dancing with everyone - to be in the thick of it.
It's tough but you just have to keep making dope records and you can't go wrong.
I like it! Not a pro yet....
The changing face of the industry and how tough it is to make a living unless you're gigging to big numbers live. (And the cost and resources associated with making that a reality).
Kind of... my local scene is pretty scarce! If I like it, I'll make time. I share the wealth when appropriate.
Resilience. But we all know us creatives get knocked and then that's when our best shit happens. HA! Don't fix it... it ain't broke.
