Music is part of me eternally. Everyday I am indulged in it whether its learning a new song or skill or practicing or thinking about my next show...I live and breath it.
My dream with music is to have a band of guys I can call friends on and off the stage, writing music that we love and that our audiences love and can learn from.
Thats a tough one, but if I had to start somewhere it would be in the education. That where the people have been most taken advantage of over the years, its the reason we are where we are today and starting from the source is the only way to fix it.
War Pigs by Black Sabbath will always have a special part in my heart because it has been such a powerful song for me through my years playing music.
Led Zeppelin, Foo fighters, Black Sabbath, Sublime, Tom Petty and John Mayer are my tops...although I've been heavily influenced by more than the mentionable amount here
I feel like although everyone lives a different life, there are many problems we all face together. If I can write a song thats melody makes people feel hope and they can relate to my lyrics, I will feel like I'm doing my part as a musician in this world.
I want to send a message of hope and change. It's about time people came together and worked towards the future...Lets stop singing about guns and violence and start preaching love and peace. The rock bands from the 60's-90's had the right idea but everyone was too blind to see the truth in the lyrics. It's time for them to realize now is the time to act before its too late!
Comfortable...There is nothing like getting in front of people and making them vibe with you. For me it's a relief because I'm usually anxious before a show...I just love performing so much.
The solo artists and rappers and DJs are making bank while the bands are definitely on the lower end of the income. Thats up to the audiences and the people promoting it at the top. I'm not close enough to give a certain answer on what would improve this.
Drooble is an amazing tool for musicians and industry pros alike. A great avenue to share music and connect with others that are passionate about the same things. I think Drooble will be one of the platforms that will improve the industry. Its network is growing fast and the features are so beneficial, I'm so thankful to have come across it!
My day job.
Hell yea! I go to shows all the time! Seeing others play on stage is what inspired me to play in the first place and I always pick up things that other musicians do on stage that improve my playing.
