Rick O





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

My favorite form of expression. The only one that I decide to master it, and I'm at work, doing that. Music gives colors to my ears.

What is your music dream?

Write a great song.

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

I would turn off my phone.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Help, The Beatles

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Grew up with rock, like Metallica, Pearl Jam, Nirvana. I started to listen to everything, but my main genre is definitely rock songwriting.

What inspires you to make music?

Listen to great songs.

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

Stop to think for 3, 4 minutes about your problems, you are not the center of the universe! I am, right now!

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

I don't perform.

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

Just because it is free to make yourself available online, doesn't mean that people need to listen to your song. Work on your craft.

What do you think of Drooble?

Just arrived. Just checking around. Can't be worst the soundcloud I believe.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

I'm not as good as I'm supposed to be.

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

Not really.

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

Marketing skills. Social media expertise. Entertain your monkeys, then you can make them dance.
