Music is made to be heard. I hope you all like it. Also, I released all of these songs under the name Meathouse Man. I'm just bad at the internet.





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

Music is wonderful. Music has helped move me in ways nothing else can. There are songs that have gotten me through life and been with me in the times I've needed it most. Music is pure, wonderful, magical.

What is your music dream?

To have my songs heard, for now eventually to be able to play for a captive audience that really loves the material.

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

Restructure society, and put a premium on eduction. Not our packaged education, but a better more practical education which would teach everyone about their bodies, their minds, how the world works, and how to best function in our society.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

That's a tough one, probably Rocket Man by Elton John. I also really loved Hotel California by The Eagles, these were songs I liked before I knew what music was or that there was more out there.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

So many, to name a few: Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Tom Petty, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, No Doubt, Pepper, Sublime, State Radio, Dispatch, Rebelution, The Cat Empire, Streetlight Manifesto, Heart, Rodriguez, Bob Dylan.... etc.

What inspires you to make music?

Anything depending on the day and what mood I'm in.

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

I just want it to be heard and for it to resonate with anyone who may need that song that day.

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

Slightly nervous.

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

It's hard to say. On one hand it's never been easier to get your music somewhere where it can be heard by a massive amount of people. On the other hand though even with access to your music will people listen? I ask myself this a lot. The other double edge sword is how easy music is to make these days. You can buy programs that come up with progressions and beats and things of that nature. You really don't need to know how to play anything anymore. Which on one hand is amazing on the other it's kind of a let down for musicians like me, I play almost all of my parts, and strive for analog sounds.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's too soon to give a good review, but it's a really cool concept.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Nothing really, in the grand scheme of things nothing matters, and I'm making my music for me. As long as I'm enjoying myself I don't let the frustrations stay.

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

I do and I don't, I support lots of small artists most of whom are friends of mine. In that sense absolutely! Also though I'm kind of a hermit, so I don't go out and support literal local acts. I don't even know all of the restaurants around me... so that should give you an idea of my hermitage.

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

Beats me man.
