It me

Hey, all! Just another metal vocalist/lyricist casting his hook into the water for bands or multi-instrumentalists with home studios to bite. Let me know if you want to do a thing together. I'm equipped to record from home as well. Gear includes SM58 mic (yes, I use pop screens when recording), Focusrite 2i2 interface, and Reaper as my DAW.







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

Music is religion

What is your music dream?

To find a group of musicians that want me to make mouth noises while they play their instruments

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

I think waterboarding the individual members of Coldplay would be a step towards world peace.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I'm really trying my best to repress those memories, thanks

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

In no particular order: Acid Bath, Cattle Decapitation, Lamb of God, Napalm Death, Gorguts

What inspires you to make music?

The constant noise in my brain that is a result from childhood trauma

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

The universe is indifferent to everything

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

Awkward, but I can deal with it.

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

It's hard to get a successful thing going in the underground rock and metal scenes these days. There are a LOT of bands that gain recognition now because they PAY for shares, votes, and likes on social media rather than EARNING it with the music itself. There are a lot of things that factor into the struggle these days, but I hope to use my music as a platform to weigh in on these issues as well as many others.

What do you think of Drooble?

I like it so far

What frustrates you most as a musician?

When someone asks me if I can "sound like" a certain vocalist; no, I can only sound like myself on purpose.

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

I go to shows and I promote any local projects I enjoy

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

Probably a decent amount of money to pay for boosts on social media

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

Uh.... who haven't you heard of?
