One of my worst fears at this point in time (aside from the Real Big Serious) is that I'm going to lose my synth collection. Like, what if I have to move and I can't haul these glorious beauties to my new home? The best thing about my collection is that most of them are either in need of repair or in various stages of disassembly. Try to pawn an M1 with its insides out. Go 'head.





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

Being part of the JV Team of the music world, I can honestly say I do music for its own sake.

What is your music dream?

To write music that stands the test of time or acts as an emotional cornerstone for someone in need. That emotion can be longing or lust or envy or anger. But music is an excellent catalyst and conduit of spiritual and emotional energy.

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

I think what makes humanity unique is our tendency to look after each other. If we leave that behind, we'll be an extinct species very quickly. I would like to impress that idea on society, somehow.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Phil Collins "Against All Odds" popped into my head, and I don't know why. It should have been Tiffany or Debbie Gibson or NKOTB, but there you have it.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Synth demo artists on YouTube. That shizz is my jam.

What inspires you to make music?

Sometimes it's my desire to hear and feel the music I want to listen to. Sometimes it's an effort to express thoughts and emotions to my small, but beloved, audience.

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

I believe I may have covered this one in a different question...

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

NERVOUS! Turn up my mic and crank up the reverb! Nothing makes me happier than to see a group of people engage with a song I'm performing, and especially one that I've written.

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

It takes a marketing team working behind you unless you are able to devote most of your waking hours to your career. The returns of developing a following don't seem to match the investment.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it's an opportunity.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not enough time. Not enough personal space. Musicians need a bubble of sorts to do what they do.

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

Circumstances at this time don't allow it.

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

Wealthy, connected, and young.
