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

A creative outlet, it gives a sense of achievement and self expression, makes me really happy. Love writing, creating and performing.

What is your music dream?

My dream is to keep creating music and people listen to it, comment and buy some of my music. Play more of my songs in public. Increase my followers who like what I do.

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

No Wars, people start getting along and realise we all need each other. People should listen to music and enjoy it.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Something about all your life in circles, it used to play on the radio when I was a child travelling on my way to our holidays.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I have lots, The Seekers, The Carpenters, Adele, Tina Turner, Lady GaGa, Kiss, The Bee Gees, too many to list, hundreds of artists. I just love most music.

What inspires you to make music?

What inspires me to write music, is the sound and then I love to sing. Its great to have a voice and get creative with sounds. It creates moods of various kinds. Love it, all moods.

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

I want people to feel the music, the mood and enjoy it, dance, sing along, or just enjoy how it makes you feel and remember things. Add it to your favourites list.

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

I get a bit nervous sometimes and worried I will forget the lyrics, but often it just flows. I love performing, theres nothing like it. Talking to the audience I find easy.

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

Its hard, so many talented people, they all deserve to be heard and be paid. Lots of places expect you to give your time for free. Musicians need to be paid way more from all venues. Life isn't cheap. Higher wages for any performance , for any musician or singer.
