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

music is everything!

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

What inspires you to make music?

Creativity often comes from suffering hardships and then coming through them. I love to create for myself and to entertain others with what I've created.

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

My message is to make people happy with the lyrics I write and the arrangements I put together. Peace and love.

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

I feel great when I perform in public! Greatest feeling in the world!

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

Too many musicians are into drugs and alcohol. I don't use either. Creativity and performance would improve if musicians would just drop these crutches.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is a great find for me. It's an excellent medium for projecting music and meeting other artists.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Having to go down in deep, dark holes occasionally and then coming out of them. I think this process is common, in some degree at least, for all musicians.

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

I go to a lot of open mics in my areas and love talking with and applauding my fellow artists.

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

Advertising can be a costly thing to get your music to the public. A musician today certainly should need to use a computer and become active on social media such as Drooble.

Paul Hubert, Steve Furbish, Kathryn Mitchell, Andy Miller
