I'm mainly a guitarplayer with progressive metal as my main genre. But I've picked up some basic skills in other instruments as well. Here is a yt-link of a song I've written and recorded;







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

A journey

What is your music dream?

Play my own compositions on stages and similar.

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

I don't want to sound cheesy, so I won't answer this ;)

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Pagan's Mind - Supremacy Our Kind, the song that probably made me start with progressive metal.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Oooooohh... Very hard to tell. Like most artists that likes to experiment and not play inside a square model. But alot of the stuff I listen to falls into the category of Progressive Metal (Opeth, Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation........ this list will get long so I'll stop here).

What inspires you to make music?

Hard to tell. Sometimes music just comes to me, othertimes I just try to catch a certain feeling.

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

Heh... different messages with different songs.. The current album I'm working on (early 2017) is targeting bullying and some of the not-so-mentioned effects that I've heard from people or experienced myself.

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

Great! No more words for it.

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

Hard to tell. A musician have always been forced to work hard if they want to live on their music.

What do you think of Drooble?

Haven't used it much yet, but seems like a cool idea.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Getting time to do everything that I want to do. I'm a student in Engineering Physics as well, and that takes up alot of time.

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

Not as much as I should.. But going to gigs at least.

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

Good music, good production and a lot of work doing promotions, keeping in touch with fans and creating networks.
