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

Music to me is the true expression of feeling alive. It gives me a sense of purpose and a space of limitless perspectives, realities and emotions. A place to feel like I am one with those aroundme.

What is your music dream?

To work with every artist I have the chance to meet and create masterpieces that will change the world for the better with every single one of them. I also want to use my writing skills, my experiences and the stories I will write in my music to influence people all around the world for the better. I just want to be remembered as the greatest writer of my generation and a man who put smiles on faces.

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

I'd rearrange the political system and change how the world views money - I'd find ways to reeducate people on what is truly valuable and how it will forever remain that way.

What inspires you to make music?

Music itself, there are points when I find myself listening to certain songs and I think about how I could possibly make songs as beautiful as those and change the lives of others.

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

Be who you want to be regardless of what anyone else says to you. Always strive to be the best version of yourself and be positive - when you think and act positively you will influence the world positively and that's what we should look forward to.

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

I feel happy. I'm always excited to stand in front of an audience and entertain them. Being on stage, expressing myself and watching people react to my music/performance is a feeling that I don't think I'll ever get tired of, I live for that fan-artist interaction.

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

We live in a really diluted era of music, where everything is constantly recycled to find that "Big Hit" which means that a lot of original high quality music is brushed aside all because "it's not the right time". I believe all truly authentic artists should keep making high quality music and never give up, we should be the change we want to see.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it's a beautiful platform that allows artists to interact with each other as well as better each other. Drooble truly is a genius idea, I'm looking forward to growing through the use of it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The fact that the least beautiful music is the most popular.

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

Yes, whenever I can I go to local shows and events to discover new music and new artists. I also try my best to look for local artists on the different social media platforms that I am on and see how I can collaborate with them.

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

I believe apart from being humble, an artist must be able to network, close deals and add onto the whatever skills they may already have. Also it's always best to have a team that is focused on the growth of that particular musician.
