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

Music is an escape and an outlet at the same time. The power to be creative with your thoughts, emotions,... and convert them to music. It's actually the best available form of therapy. And it's free!

What is your music dream?

To do as much as I can.

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

Go back in time to prevent the invention of money and politics.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Queen, Korn, Meshuggah, Morbid Angel, Vision Of Disorder, Congress, Liar, Gojira, Dying Fetus, Pantera, Deftones, Emperor, Code Orange, Tallah, ... and so many many more.

What inspires you to make music?

I guess it's in my blood. It's the power to be creative in a world that destroys.

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

As long as you're not hurting anyone, you're good the way you are. And also the fact that humanity is destroying society and the planet we live on.

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

Nervous, every single time. The first 5 minutes anyway. But then it feels like I'm doing what I'm supposed to do.

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

A lot of it is fake. When it comes to mainstream music anyway. Oh, and people should buy physical copies instead of streaming all the time. Or maybe I'm getting old,...

What do you think of Drooble?

I really have no idea. Second day here. But it's a very good idea for starters. Lets see how it turns out...

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Wouldn't it be cool if it would be a day time job?

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

Of course. By going to shows, buying music (only physical copies) or merch and by making live pictures of those shows.

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

Be true. I'm not very fond of musicians who don't write their own music... and always have respect for those who support you...

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