Story

Hi Drooblers, I'm a songwriter/composer of different styles of music, from easy listening (with a love for female vocals) to rock and to classic. I was a 4x finalist in the UK Songwriters Contest. I play several instruments myself. All my music is available for artists that seek songs for their own repertoire. Contact me for that, all my music is registered with the ISRC code, so you can immediately start using it. If you need a track without the vocals, so you sing it in yourself, just let me know.

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

Music is the main activity in my life. Music keeps the frequency of my vibration on track :-)

What is your music dream?

Although I already work with some great vocalists, my wish is to write for people that actually performs my music. I am not an eager performer myself. I compose, play and record my music but I want to stay the hermit I am and have others do the performances, enjoying themselfs with my music.

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

Changing the world.... Well at least I would change the education of youth, or let's say I would have them tought the ego-mecanics, so they all would understand how thier behaviour is influenced by their ego. When they know this they should be able to understand that ego is something unmissable but can also that their ego should not be the main part of their caractre. Thus resulting in a less excessive world, more mild, more understanding for each other, more relaxed. We all can see how ego has taken over a complete nation and is disrupting a whole world - the US. We all can see that is not the way the world should be working.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Difficult, there are more, I mention: Elemental Child - by Marc Bolan (T-Rex) Most of the songs on the Woodstack album Neil Young and CSN&Y, Santana, Yes, Genesis (Peter Gabriel period), love the Lamb Lies Down still. Nowadays I would add Muse to that, although you cannot hear that in my own music.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Neil Young and CSN&Y, Santana, Yes, Genesis (Peter Gabriel period), love the Lamb Lies Down still. Nowadays I would add Muse to that, although you cannot hear that in my own music. I admire much Radiohead

What inspires you to make music?

Everday life

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

Be more relaxed and refrain from ego driven actions, avoid them before you express them.

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

I never do, did it about 10 years, don't like that anymore. Maybe because I am not a flowless performer, in that the studio is more my thing.

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

Music and music making has become mainstream, everybody can make music in a compact studio nowadays. And that is a good thing. But making money of it has become vertually impossible. But that's fine.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble started off very nice. Not sure about all the changes recently but I understand that. I see the problems Drooble faces too. I like it so far :-)

What frustrates you most as a musician?

At the moment I am frustration-free :-)

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

Don't understand this question.

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

Musicallity :-)

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

No idea at this moment.....myself? :-)
