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

Probably like most people involved with music, I believe music is an expression of the soul. From our darkest fears to our highest hopes, we express ourselves in music no less than a writer expresses in words. My music does for me what nothing else can besides prayer. It provides release for that which needs to be let out, whether good or bad, I make what I feel.

What is your music dream?

For years I have been enamored with music I hear as the credits roll at the end of a movie. I have heard some of the best music there and my dream, humble as it may seem to others, is to have one or more of my songs played at the end of a movie. May not be a big dream, but it's a dream nonetheless.

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

To see as many people come to Christ Jesus as possible. And I would hope that my music, though it's not Christian music per se, could help in that regard.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I'd have to get back to you on that one! There are so many it would be hard to narrow it down! Ok, after some thought I decided it would have to be "Amazing Grace".

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

The Beatles and The Orb stand out, though there are others. Those two probably have had the biggest influence.

What inspires you to make music?

A passion for which I have no other way of expression.

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

Enjoy it.

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

I don't perform.

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

I would get into a lot of trouble if I answered that.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is awesome! We finally have a way for us poor artists to get our music heard.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My lack of talent.

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

No. At my age I'm doing good to support myself when I stand up. :-)

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

I would like to think it would be what has always been, that is be the best you can be and never give up on learning. I will be 70 this October and I am still learning new stuff about creating music.

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

Mark LaFountain. My best friend on Soundcloud and here on Drooble soon, I hope. I've invited him. I've done many remixes of his music and really enjoy working with his tunes. Watch for him to come to Drooble in the near future, He stays so busy with work and family that it may take a little time for him to get here.
