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

The possibility to communicate with different people my emotions. I like when I write a song and the music is only in my mind.

What is your music dream?

I want to make my album, there are years I want it, but there's something to wrong. I haven't a lot of money and it's difficult for me to find a band.

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

I would to see different people rich and famous, less gossip at the television and less celebrities not very "artistic", but I don't know how.

i remember "Billy Jean", I was child and I've thought that it was American sounds, not European...

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Nirvana, Rem, Oasis, Green Day, I'm a 90s fan. In Italy I like Patty Pravo and Anna Oxa, two particular women and some Italian songwriters as Lucio Battisti, Antonello Venditti and Francesco De Gregori. I prefer the 70s songwriters, simple and intelligent, as Simon & Garfunkel.

What inspires you to make music?

My mother and my grandfather sung at home, but very well, with passion.

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

To search true feelings and not only supercial emotions.

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

I'm not just a great performer, I write lyrics and books, I sing well but when I'm quiet, not when I must pass a casting or a contest.

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

I think that there is few meritocracy in the music world. It's important more to have a famous agency or begin young that what you sing. The indipendent sites and radios are important to change the things.

What do you think of Drooble?

This is a very good webiste, full of energy and interesting people. I hope that you'll have more publicity.

It's very difficult to find the right people, because the market is based on young artists, it's more important to be a teenager than your ability as artist. This is not correct.

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

There's a very good website, Music in your city, full of artists near to your home. It's very interesting.

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

A good agency. I think the market is fixed: some people have too much publicity and money, whater a lot of artists fast nothing.

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

In Italy there are a lot of songwriters, Matia Bazar aren't less famous than they merite, or Francesco Guccini. He has written serious songs, about the society. Milva is less famous than Mina, but she's a very intelligent person.
