What inspires you to make music?

Everyday life experiences

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

I don't know to be honest, I write to vent and use my writing as therapy, it just turns out that there are a lot of others that like what I'm writing about, we are not the role model type band, sorry, zero messages of love and peace, we do have a few ballads though lol :)

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

The best high anyone can ever experience, I'm at home...I love it!!

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

I grew up on band comradery, the Bay Area bands use to support each other back in the days, big bands would pull smaller bands up take them on tour etc. etc., it sucks now because a lot of big bands from the area mainly think about themselves and not the entire movement which screws things up for everyone, that's why when they fall from grace they come back to zero support because they forgot about everyone that helped get them on top, and other genres get bigger than ours so we suffer as a community...(Metal/Thrash Metal)...Major thanks and respect to D.R.I. for taking us on the road with them and keeping the movement alive.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think its pretty cool, I wish I had more time to explore it but unfortunately I don't, we are always working \m/

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That's easy.... The average musician depending on their country or area pay about $700 to $800 a month for a rehearsal studio, approximately $300 to $500 a month for show flyers and advertisement depending on how many shows they do per month, Ep's, Demo's, Full CD's T'Shirts, Stickers etc etc etc (combined) $2500 to $5000 plus depending on your producer/engineers skill level and reputation in the music industry , these are just expenses off the top, I haven't even touched gas, rent, mortgage, kids, food etc, and then some A$$HOLE club owner/promoter has the audacity to want a band to play for free for exposure ? Hey JackA$$! why don't you give out free shots and beer to our friends and fans to promote your club eh?

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

Yes I buy their music, wear their shirts and go to their shows when I can, I share their links etc

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

Money and patience

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