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

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.

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

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.

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.

Jetpack Assassin and Scout 22, Van Der Graaf Generator, Family (and Roger Chapman).
