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

Music is my language, my oxygen, my life.

What is your music dream?

I don't have a music dream, I have a music life and dream music.

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

I would start by removing the people who are always trying to change it. The world is a perfect amazing place, it's the people who dwell on it who break it.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Bloody well right - SUPERTRAMP

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Steve Vai Vangelis Jean Michelle Jarre Ted Heath Duke Ellington Count Bassie Thomas Lang TWOBOB

What inspires you to make music?

Rhythm

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

The music I write is what I want to listen to. I compose for my own selfish desire, if others enjoy it along the way then that's a bonus.

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

HIGH

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

That's purely subjective, if you mean the industry then it's a broken hideous monster which ruins true creativity by churning out mass produced durge with the intention to control peoples choices by over saturation of a fake reality.

What do you think of Drooble?

Ask me again in a year

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not owning all the instruments in the world and the ability to be able to learn how to master all of them.

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

I do not restrict myself to a "local area" I'm global baby ;)

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

This is a pointless question there are 100s of thousands of outstanding musicians who never get heard and thousands of terrible one's who are dominating the airways
