I have been writing my own music since I was in my teens and have recently put together a band called Cong-Fusion. My influences are Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock and early Jamiroquai. We have only performed a few gigs together so far but the reaction from the audience has been great.
Music is everything to me. It gives me life and inspiration. It soothes my soul and makes everything better for me.

For me making music is about writing stuff that is interesting and about important things that have happened personally to me in my life.
The message I want to send is for people to love one another and to realise that what they do to others has consequences that may not be reversible.
I feel ecstatic, espeically when I can see that they are enjoying the music.
Spotify could start paying musicians proper money. The same goes for other streaming sites but I realise this is never going to happen.
I think Drooble is a great idea. I love it compared to other sites such as Reverbnation as people genuinely listen to your music and comment. There's no trying to con you out of money either which is nice.
Not getting paid what I deserve to be paid for all the work I've put into being a musician.
I attend jazz gigs and go watch my friends play when I can afford to.
Their music should be interesting and it helps to engage the audience by getting them to sing along.
