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

Music to me is a real place to be free. It gives you a source of your medicine that allows you to really be honest with yourself.

What is your music dream?

I dont need to be huge, but i'd rather not be local either. I believe everything happens for a reason.

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


Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Lithium - Nirvana

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Nirvana, the doors, seether, blink 182, tupac, twiztid, bullet for my valentine, mayday parade, there are so many more thats just a little from each genre.

What inspires you to make music?

Everyday gets harder to be inspired, but once my mood clicks with a song im listening to thats whrn i know what i need to write about.

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

Whatever hardship your going through your not alone. I have to many different expierences, i feel like an old soul.

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

Right now its nothing special, but when it gets more serious and i know people are showing up for me, it will be a magical feeling. A dream come true.

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

Some are fakers, and autotune. Some muscians just need to be true to themselves and need to stop doing what ever is popular thats why i feel my sound is so different. My last mixtape "Addict With Emotions" i put little to no effects in each song. I wanted a raw power sound that went with the title. What i said is just an "opinion" muscians should make whatever they want, its about being free.

What do you think of Drooble?

I really like the concept. Its to early to tell but i think it will help out a lot of muscians especially new ones, kind of like reverb did.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Finding inspiration, and learning new instruments.

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

Yes and no. If i hear it and like it ill tell ya. If i hear it and dont like it i wont say nothing, because its just an "opinion" unless i feel they are really trying and ill try to give constructive critisim.

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

SOCIAL MEDIA SOCIAL MEDIA SOCIAL MEDIA!!!! I would say we are better off than the 80s 90s or 00s, but truth be told its more competitive. Just keep putting music up all over without profit and eventually you'll get a fan base. I grew 300 fans on fb and reverb 5 to 6 years ago. If i kept with it who knows what would of happened.

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

I really been digging doobie before he kind of blew up. Artists around my area is not really my style. Although t zilla the martian is pretty legit.
