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

Music is another form of self-expression. I seek what I need through the various genres ... there is music for all occasions.

What is your music dream?

To travel the world sharing my music, poetry, and philosophy on life.

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

Teaching love and forgiveness

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

too many to name one

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I like a variety of music and bands from just about all genres.

What inspires you to make music?

listening to my mother's music as a child, learning to play the piano, playing in my high school band, and singing with live bands as an adult.

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

Seek your purpose for being here on earth - each one teach one.

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

Like I'm home ; at a big party with friends - ALIVE!!!

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

I think musicians and any performers that make it to "icon" level have a moral responsibility to the children that have to listen to their words and music. It should lift the down trodden and inspire the inquisitive to be their best person. The explicit wordings and profanity is not necessary and needs to be banned. It serves nothing positive.

What do you think of Drooble?

Just joined ... let me see. So far, it sounds too good to be true, and I have been warned against things of that nature :>)

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Musicians that don't show up for gigs or take breaks and return late. Also, musicians that turn their amps up so loud, they drown out the other instruments which are needed for harmony, and the vocalist has to strain or sing at the top of his voice to be heard.

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

I am constantly called on to perform for fundraisers and community events.

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

From what I have heard, it is not the quality but the frequency of hearing their music. There have been songs that I did not think were "all that," but because they were played so much, they became popular and even hits!

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