Story

I love to sing, write, and play. I try to make sense of this life through songs and I love hearing others do the same.

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

Music is something to aspire to! It gives me joy and direction.

What is your music dream?

I once had a dream that I was in a rock band with everyone I worked with. It was an awesome dream. But seriously, I'd like to one day have my music inspire future generations.

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

Individual perspective. Perhaps it's to see the good and be the good. Oh, and cruelty to animals. Watch the documentary, Earthlings. Once you know, you cannot be complacent!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

My dad's compositions! Also, Help! by the Beatles.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Well ok, here's a broad mix for you: Billy Joel, Queen, Sarah McLaughlin, Caterina Valente, Domenico Modugno, Dalida, Sean Colvin, Paula Cole, Madonna, Tori Amos, Indigo Girls, Pink Floyd, The Who, Tracy Chapman, Nat King Cole, Mariah Carey, Led Zeppelin, Arjana Grande, anything Motown, Beatles, Beach Boys, and Giovanni Blue ;-)

What inspires you to make music?

Conflict.

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

Process process process... be honest, work it out, and make it beautiful.

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

Numb, tingly, and short of breath.

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

There are so many of us. Everyone just have a good time and show your good will.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it's been a long time coming. Glad to have it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My lack of technical skill and the reticence I have toward working on that, lol!

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

I could do better on that.

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

Being tech savvy and going viral helps! God knows, I've got neither one, lol!

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

Just browse a bit on here...there are so many good ones. <3
