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

Music is the universal language. To me it is like a time machine to the past. I love how music could trigger your memory and bring you back to a place of your past.

What is your music dream?

I want my songs to have meaning. I don't want to just write songs for my own pleasure. I want to share them with the world and make a modest living doing it.

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

I would start with human greed by redefining the capitalistic way of living with more of a socialistic approach. Next I would tackle our agricultural standards.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Pulling mussels

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, Senses Fail, The Lumineers,

What inspires you to make music?

A passion that burns deep inside me. Its ingrained in my DNA.

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

Love for all and all for love.

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


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

Singer song writers are the new thing. Much harder for musicians to make a living being in a collective group.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think its a great resource for artist to use to improve their brand.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

How its all about the dollar and no longer about the music. Venues don't pay enough or they want you to play to play.

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

Very little. Something I need to do more.

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

Marketing skills. You have to treat your music like a business. 90% of musicians that fail are because they like in this field. They just want to write record and perform but they don't want to spend the money to get their name out there.

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