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

Songwriting and music are therapy ... I can process what I have experienced, and I can experience what others have been through.

What is your music dream?

To play until I drop!

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

I want folks to FEEL something! Less isolation, more communication.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Waaaay too many to list.

What inspires you to make music?

Everything inspires me.

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

At home.

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

I tour solo full time, and it's a LOT of work, because I have to do every single bit of everything, from booking to marketing to merchandising to driving to setup/teardown. I absolutely LOVE what I do ... sure wish networking for solo singer/songwriter venues was a bit easier. I have to make my own circuit ... my own market ... every day.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

So many folks see me smiling, happy to be playing, and don't think I should be paid for this. They see it as a hobby.

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

I try to connect with local musicians wherever I travel. If I can schedule a house concert where we share the evening, that's a win/win for everyone - the musicians, the guests!

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

Be persistent and consistent.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
