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

Music is therapy in the best way possible. It can give everyone a sense of what you are going through no matter what the emotion. It's always heard in the music.

What is your music dream?

To play with some of the best musicians and song writers in the world no matter the language or genre. Making money would be an added bonus but I want to make something that's heard and loved for generations like Mozart or the Beatles.

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

Music and Art funding in schools. From there lets talk about the inequality between classes and come together to rebuild these abandoned homes and put our homeless in them.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Linoleum - NOFX

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Blink 182, Green Day, Nirvana, PUP, Wonder Years, Tiny Moving Parts, Remo Drive, Modern Baseball...the list is pretty long but those are in constant rotation

What inspires you to make music?

For myself it is just to get better but with a band or group its a like minded goal.

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

It's ok to be yourself. It's ok to have those feelings. It's ok because life can get better and that is just a moment in time.

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

During the show I am on cloud 9. After I am exhausted because with every show I put it all out there on the line.

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

Labels seem to have saturated the market with music that isn't necessarily bad but it doesn't speak much to the soul. My uncles used to talk about days when labels would just sign anyone who had an interesting sound and see how it goes. As opposed to now you have to fit a very basic genre and sometimes that it is not the mainstream thing to do. So I feel a lot of artist and insanely talented people are overlooked because they don't fit that mold that is popular at the time.

What do you think of Drooble?

I'm new to this platform so I am hoping to network with some great people and see what happens.
