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

Music is the biggest change in my life.

What is your music dream?

Grammy, sure! )))

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

I would ban Russian chanson ;)

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Bob Marley - Redemption song... I think my father sang this song.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I don't have one favorite artist, there are a lot of them and they are all in different genres..

What inspires you to make music?

Musicians who have already received a Grammy, of course)

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

Find out who you are, be who you are, love who you are.

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

Magic :)

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

I think the biggest problem for musicians right now is the inability to tour a lot because of Covid. But apart from that, aspiring musicians find themselves in a bad position. They get little feedback and find it difficult to promote their music on their own. On the other hand, a lot of great musicians write good, niche music that the mainstream audience won't understand. There is no way to fix this, because only a big miracle can affect the masses.

What do you think of Drooble?

I have very pleasant impressions of this site, it seems that many of my friends-musicians will find it useful to register there and get feedback from professionals and appear on their radio. I will recommend this platform to my friends.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Lack of money for promotion)

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

Yes of course. I attend concerts of local bands and always listen to their good, quality tracks on streaming services. I could buy their merch if it was as cool as their music :)

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

Good marketing policy, hit song, charismatic artist.

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

You may not have heard the band Velikhan (Kiev, Ukraine) I was also impressed by the English singer "beebadobee". I am in awe of the young talents who make music in their bedrooms and this is not about Billie Eilish at all.
