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

Music can lift your spirits up and tell a story, love the vibe from most styles of music

What is your music dream?

Good question? I think I love the feedback from people when i'm singing and I love the fact that people young and old like my style and better still to hear that my style is different and that I don't play typical main stream music is even sweeter! Especially since I perform cover songs and tributes to Diana Ross, M People, Alicia Keys and Whitney Houston most weekends so it really is a compliment to hear that i write music that relate to 'real people'.

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


Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Believe it or not 'David Soul' lol, 'Don't give up on us Baby' and the fabulous Bob Marley, Shalamar, all that kinda stuff

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I'm not honestly sure, only because i sing so many different styles so i would like to think that all the styles have an influence especially since i have been told many times that my music i different!!

What inspires you to make music?

Real life, people's own life, the haters lol

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

well...hopefully each song sends a different message so it's kinda difficult to answer that one, but i would like to think that each one of my songs will enlighten and help people in whatever way it can, the titles usually says it all sometimes lol

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

Absoutely love performing, the buzz, the vibe that you get from the crowd can feel magical on stage, in Church, outside festivals...anywhere is great just love singing and performing

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

It would be great if we were paid more for our streams especially since most people are downloading and streaming than buying CD's now

What do you think of Drooble?

I absolutely love Drooble, i started today and it feels like you really care about musicians and and understand our needs and what we are trying to achieve, i just love these questions for example and I have already shared Drooble to fellow musicians

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not getting enough gigs to support original artistes and also the fact that people think because your name isn't in lights that you ain't good enough, but the fact is we are, we just need to be heard

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

I share other artistes and other events on social media

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

An app like this to promote us

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

Michael Donaby a soul singer from America, Starboy Thomas from my hometown but now lives in Hungary and Lauren V Songs who lives in Brighton, all different styles but great musicians...there are many more of course, but these three stand out for me.
