Sound Pallet By Gary Mathis








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

My release, it occupies a needed space in my mine and soul.

What is your music dream?

Just write and record to achieve a higher level of professional musical abilities. If people like it then that would be a bonus.

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

N/A - I'm not here to change the world just make a nicer place to live in. I'm a grain of sand in the desert I can't do much.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Don't have one.. I sang every song on the radio as a kid.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?


What inspires you to make music?

Mental health lol

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

Inner peace for others. Some people need new music to sooth the soul.

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

After the 1st note I just flow but before that note I'm a bit nervous.

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

There's no $ future for a "REAL" musician. Starving artist is real and thriving in the world. If you want to be a musician go to collage get a decent job that gives you time for your music when your not on the clock. I work at home and that give me much time to play and record.

What do you think of Drooble?

Love that concept let see where it goes.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Lack of other musicians. No one to compose and bounce ideas off of and the ED music has killed the true musician that can play an instrument.

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

Not much I'm recluse and pretty much play every day and record when I feel a melody is worthy of being recorded. I miss the target sometimes and write a flop but 80% of the time I can find good melodies to write around.

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

Not sure I never cracked that code.

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

Nothing is new under the son.. Practice "EVERY" day never missing a day... If your a guitarist like me learn how to play drums "WELL" early on. Put as much time into drums as you do guitar. It's the rhythm section that drives the tune not your guitar. I learned that the hard way and I'm still paying for it.
