Gift of Pain


Life has been rough, very rough. But I dig deep...for me...for you.... I learned everything on my own, I do it all alone. I do it for Me. I do it for you. Playing instruments one by one since 1995, until i can play them all. Mastering and recording since 2013 with the help of an angel in Illinois who keeps me going . The backbone of The Gift of Pain. Resources, Support and Motivation! Let's GO!







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

Music is everything. The right music can influence you to do hear me?!....ANYTHING!

What is your music dream?

To make music for a living. Music is the one thing in life that i have the most passion for. Living the Dream!...

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

If i could change the world, I would start with myself. You can't take care of another if you can't take care of yourself. I just wish everyone would chill the F out..c'mon man...really

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I'm not sure, I always have songs in whole life

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Deftones, Chevelle, Pink Floyd, Don Henley, Golden Earring, Tool, I like a lot of bands, But it's not about the band is it? It's about the music. Too many to list man.....

What inspires you to make music?

The Feeling that you get when a song connects with you is unlike any other feeling in the world, It's almost like great sex, REALLY great sex!

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

You're not alone, The struggle is real. Let me show you.....

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

I'm starting to like it honestly. At first i was afraid of "mistakes" but i have learned, you can fk'n do it man!!!

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

That's a matter of opinion really. I can't say i can judge something like that based off of the general music industry really. I mean there are bands out there that you will connect with, and of course there is music out there that is just simply not for you... As far as it goes for me. I just want a piece of this footprint. I want to impact people all over the world one day. You know, that "one" catchy song.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far i like it. I will explore more and touch base on this...

What frustrates you most as a musician?

time to make music,and the stress of (simple) bills period.

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

There are local musicians that play near me and also an arena near by. I try to attend when i can, and when i do it's a good time. I try to interact with the band (if possible, and not coming off creepy). On side of that, if a local artist comes is on the radio even with myself i will throw them a shout out on facebook or what have you. It's good to see other people still makling it happen. Like when i went to my first "concert", people moshing and kicking the ceiling down. The music was soo intense that i fell in love with music that day. "I'm gonna do that one day"....

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

I honestly have no idea yet. I am a solo artist and still waiting for any kind of recognition, besides local radio contest plays...idk what is next. But my dream will come true the day i find that out. 110%
