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

Music is a direct conduit to the soul. There is nothing like music that can directly influence a persons interaction. It can change a bad day to a good one if the right song is played. Writing music allows you to release the images and thoughts trapped in your head. It's truly therapeutic.

What is your music dream?

In the Past, I wanted to be in a major band and sell out venues, now I'm driven by connecting with people through music.

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

More Love, compassion, understanding and tolerance for one another. If we had these things, the world would be a better place.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"Wanted Dead or Alive", Bon Jovi or "It's not Love" by Dokken

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Godsmack, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Mercy Me, Third Day, Tenth Avenue North, Casting Crowns, Metallica, Edwin McCain, Dokken, Bon Jovi, Kenny Wayne Shepard,

What inspires you to make music?

Lyrically, life experiences, either mine or what I observe in others. I enjoy seeing people having fun or get some meaning out of music.

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

There is a bigger purpose.

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

Excited and anxious, but once the audience settles in, its fun.

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

Reality is only relative to you at that moment. Reality is in a constant state of change. Soon as you think you understand, it's already changed.

What do you think of Drooble?

I am new to Drooble, but it has some interesting potential. I cant wait to see what happens.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Finding other musicians with the same level of direction, commitment (not more and not less), the same musical influences.

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

I love to check out live music. Everything from main venues to open mic nights. Positive feedback to performers and let them know you appreciate it. Life's to short for trolls either online or in person.

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

Be willing to be open to feedback ( not from the amplifiers) from other musicians and the audience. Just because I want to play a certain song, it doesn't mean an audience will want to hear it. If I write a song, it may be impactful and have meaning to me, but may not translate to meaning for a listener.
