What is your music dream?

To be proud of the industry that the aggregate effort of our collaboration brings into the world.

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

I would start with the way that we consume art and media. Those I look up to in the industry have always impressed upon me that music is to be consumed critically and with intent to expand your understanding about another human being. A lot of music, to me, is "go about your day and let this be the sound in the background."

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

SOPHIE, Jon Hopkins, Clem Leek,

What inspires you to make music?

Thought vomit, essentially

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

That idealism is not as unrealistic as people say it is

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

We need to showcase what we have to say, but not take ourselves so seriously.

What do you think of Drooble?

Honestly, I've found no better outlet to showcase my work. It's intuitive, simple, and creator-oriented. There's a simplicity to it that I really appreciate.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Writing. It's always been difficult for me. But that just assures me of the love I have for it, because the exhiliration and fulfillment of completing a piece always trumps the difficulty of the undertaking.

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

A separation from the trophies of material success in the music industry.

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