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

A drug: Catharsis. Self-discovery. Subconscious release. Adrenaline rush. Delusions of grandeur. Synesthesia.

What is your music dream?

Don't need to dream it when you breathe it and secrete it.

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

Less denail, more acceptance.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Yesterdays - The Beatles.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Chris Cornell, Soundgarden, Alter Bridge, Mark Tremonti, Soen, Tool, A perfect circle, Radiohead, Portishead, Pearl Jam, Winery Dogs, Ritchie Kotzen, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin.

What inspires you to make music?

Darkness, hapiness, impatience, love, hurt, ego trips, boredome, enthusiasm... pretty much everything.

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

I think letting the subconscious speak for itself often makes the most powerful impact, however uninterpretable it may be. I try to get rid of the filter - the rationalizing middle man - and get to the real stuff. The stuff I don't even understand about myself.

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

Probably the way most human beings would feel in that situation. Adrenaline-filled animals.

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

This is a great moment to get your music out, be an independent musician and collaborate with people all over the world. I think we're a very fortunate generation in that sense. The main challenge these days is standing out from the crowd!

What do you think of Drooble?

Love it! I hope more people use it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

How expensive gear is and having to save up for a loooong time to finally get the sound you want.

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


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

Luck, good connections, smart marketing, a huge time investment, a significant financial investment... and, you know, talent and originality. But seriously, everything's marketing these days.
