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

Music is the power to shape sounds. It helps to escape boredom and negativity and it also develops your personality.

What is your music dream?

I just want to reach the best technical and musical skill I can, I would love to reach out to a small audience of people who would enjoy my music, of course making music for a living would also be best case scenario but I always stay realistic and don't get my hopes up because most of the time it's just a dream.

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

First of all I would erase all of the negativity from everyone around me, because it looks like everyone gets mad at each other for no logical reason, today's youth to me looks very dissatisfied with everything and they get very easily offended, which is probably why most of them are depressed. So I guess this kind of thinking is what makes a person get more problems so that is the first thing I would get rid of.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I remember when I was a kid I would watch all sorts of animations and there was this parody which was a music video based on bohemian rhapsody by Qeen, the lyrics were remade but the melody was somewhat the same, so yeah.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Recently I really got into math rock but my music taste is very multicultural. Right now my favorite bands are Fight Cloud, Toe, Tangled Hair, TTNG, Chon, Mac DeMarco (yeah he's just one artist), Beck, TOOL, Alice in Chains and so on.

What inspires you to make music?

Most of the time I just want to make something new and better with each song. It just feels like that it's my purpose to make music.

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

Well, I want to send a different kind of message, something like, I want to motivate other people to find something they like, not necessarily music, and work towards it, get better at what they do and reach their goals and make their life interesting.

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

I feel extremely anxious and self-critical. I can't stay relaxed no matter what and that keeps me from performing. Im not sure I even like it, to be honest. I just want to make music and share it on the internet with other people.

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

Im not sure I don't know that much about being a pro musician.

What do you think of Drooble?

Haven't used it that much so I can't tell.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Most of the time it's just little things, people making fun of my song titles, lyrics or maybe over-exaggerated compliments.

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

Confidence, energy, charisma, being organized optimistic and motivated.

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