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

Music is a phenomena. It gives fuel to the soul.

What is your music dream?

Depends; in my sleep, I dream of animals. To influence media involving wildlife and environmental awareness. I also dream of opening for some of my favorite artists: Seven Lions, MitiS, Coldplay, The Killers, etc.

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

I will change how the world treats wildlife. I'll do that by rendering sounds named after animals, whom people will think about. Wildlife are crucial to the survival of the planet and we have so much to learn from them.

What inspires you to make music?

The musicians I listen to reveal a lot about the atmosphere in my music. Also, my dreams often contain music I incorporate into my songs.

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

Animals matter very much. We must respect all earthlings in this life.

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

Excited and nervous! Sometimes on set I lose focus, which I neglect is only natural.

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

Musicians are challenged by an unphased, cutthroat industry, turned-omnipotent network. They are forced to create a brand, an innovation. Being friendly to the planet needs to be the next great innovation.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is one of the most innovative tools yet for musicians to connect.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Losing work during a session is pretty frustrating. Sometimes the loss is a small edit, other times it's an entire song.

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

Volunteering at local venues, cross-promoting for the vegan scene, and partnering with animal rights and civil rights organizations.

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

Express yourself musically the way a lion would roar naturally.

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