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

I live in music and I breathe in music. This is my job, my hobby, my life.

What is your music dream?

I live in my music dream, but maybe - to be on a real big stage as a singer.

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

make music not war and hate. Music is intergalactical language.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Paul Anka Papa There are lot of song about love, about beautiful girls, about mohters; too much songs about drugs, sex, abuse, also too much song, that does not say anything and have no point or meaning. But there are not much song about FATHERS and about how important a father is in our life

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Chris Rea, Mark Knopfler, Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Dave Gahan, Leonard Cohen

What inspires you to make music?

Life itself, everything i see and feel aruound me in my life.

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

We are one race - humans... Not black-white-yellow.... We are humans.

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

Every gig is different, but I feel, when the audience is in the same mood. Our gigs are always different and it all depends on the mood and audience. And when the connection has been good, I get so much energy and positive feeling, that I go home and feel it for hour and hours and I'm really thankful for that.

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

In my point of view, the music has gone way too far from music to business. People do not make music for music, but for money. I know lot of bands, that have been made just to make money. They are business projects, not bands and it has nothing to do with music

What do you think of Drooble?

Love it

What frustrates you most as a musician?

I do not make music to be frustrated, I make music because I love it, because I want to , because this is my life

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

This is a hard one. I see that more and more "nonsense" artist are in "large audience" - give them a hard beat, lot of bass, flahing lights and loud sound and couple of words to yell along in a second minute "jump- jump -jump" or "do ya feel the beat, feel the beat" .. ect :-) I really don't get it. Seriously. This has no point, no meaning, no words no thing to say. This is not even music for me. But somewhy more and more young people like it. I think that real musicians should keep on doing real music with harmonies, real lyrics, real stories to tell.

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

oh, you're asking about me ;-) Ok, that's a joke. I have my friend Fred and a group Mirt here in Estonia, making some awsome music And i really enjoy mari Boine And lot of people don't know one of the lovliest jazz singers ZAZ :-) She is so lovely and adorable and I love the shine in her eyes when she sings and her smoie voice
