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

Music is having a voice and showing the possibilities of the imagination. It's just like art, but the visual quality of music is in your head. It's something you can feel, and a chance to tell the world how you feel.

What is your music dream?

I set goals for myself to do my best, and the dream is to complete that goal and keep going. I know that it's something I like to do, so I'm looking forward to what I make next.

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

That's a good question- I think I'm doing my best to make the world happier. Attitude and dedication to a craft or trade is very important to me. Time is always an opportunity. Take care of yourself and your loved ones, and go from there.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

There are too many.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

There's too many to mention. I look at people doing all sorts of things and feel a connection- sometimes I wish I was doing what they can do.

What inspires you to make music?

My desire to express myself is my first inspiration.

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

I want people to be entertained and inspired.

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

I feel engaged in the moment. My time to speak through tones.

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

The biggest improvement would be the willingness and ability for more people to feel freedom in music, rather than restraint. Everyone feels music differently but everyone's entitled to share their ideas, and it's an opportunity that shouldn't be wasted. I think people quote others too often when it's their moment to say something they would want.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's very nice. It's not every day you find a new website that connects musicians at this level.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Music to me is a striving to be perfect. Because I am a musician, it takes a willingness and determination that is always stretching the boundaries of what I can handle. But it has its rewards.

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

I like going to open mic nights and listening to everyone who's there and then giving some feedback. Or I'll stop in a local show sometimes just to check it out.

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

Just make the best music and be kind & thoughtful. The rest takes care of itself. I think we're all very eager to get heard but not excited enough to be better.

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

I don't know who you guys are familiar with.
