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

Music to me is the universal language that connects all existence, we do not play it, we are simply vessels upon which it streams through. It gives me truth and healing, reconnects me back to source and allows me to expand beyond all expectations of reality.

What is your music dream?

To be an open vessel for pure vibrational liberation. Help others release unto it's magic and healing.

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

We all do our part by living our truth's and walking in that innerstanding. The world does not need to change. We just need to open our eyes to the truth which resides in our hearts.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I do not have one song. I grew up in an diversely musical household. Lots of 80's salsa, merengue, spanish reggae, dancehall, rock, metal, etc. I am so grateful for this diverse musical upbringing.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

So many inspirations everywhere... depends upon the mood it always changes... to name a few that lately have me full of inspiration: Tigran Hamasyan, Villa Locura, Baba Gris, Sr. Langosta, Nahko & MFTP, Xavier Rudd & Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah.

What inspires you to make music?

Silence, noise and everything in between. We are vibrational beings passing through this physical experience with a need to express and transmute life's ups and downs. More than inspiration, music is my way to truly live.

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

The message is clarity, liberation, remembrance unto the truth of our being, to live a life beyond mental constructs and know that all we want is already inside. Wake up and dance, move onto the rhythm of your soul.

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

Most times I feel alive, in truth and purpose. There may be days where I struggle to be present, but once I liberate unto the magic of the music and the energetic exchange of all those present. I can truthfully say Blessed. Grateful. Healed.

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

I feel there is too much vanity and competition. Social media makes it awkward and tedious for me. Numbers, likes and views determine what is popular which sadly doesn't always reflect on the greatness of the music itself. In the end I trust that true and powerful music will prevail and those that believe, and keep working shall get where they vision.

What do you think of Drooble?

Just found it today. Seems like a pretty darn cool initiative!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Having to do all the non musical (booking, management, PR, social media, etc.)

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

Absolutely! I go to as much gigs, concerts, events as possible. Buy there merch, promote on social media, share their amazing music with as much people as possible!

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

Sadly I feel in these time that a lot of it has to do with how good you are with selling yourself online. Becoming good at social media promotion and whatnot. Although I still believe that having great music will always be what's most important.
