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

Peace of mind. A way of communicating about my feelings and the things I think about. A way of connecting with other people. In a way, it's emotions.

What is your music dream?

First of all getting my music heared by as many people as possible. I also dream of performing on big festival stages.

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

What most people should start with, themselves. I try to be the best person I can be, every day.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Strange enough, songs that were before my time. I really love the music of the 70s and 80s, although I was only born in 1979. I guess one of my big favourites is "The Show Must Go On" by Queen.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Queen, Alice Cooper, Kamelot, Nightwish, Rammstein, Alphaville, Peter Schilling, and so many more.

What inspires you to make music?

My emotions, my family, my friends, my daughter, other music, everything around me.

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

Every song has a different message in which I hope that people can recognize themselves.

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

That is the most wonderfull feeling, certainly with a good band behind you, and when you see that the people appreciate your music and start jumping along, when you start jumping. :-)

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

At the moment, in Belgium, when you bring original songs (so not a cover band) it's very difficult to get chances to perform. I hope we can get more performances.

What do you think of Drooble?

Looks nice, until now.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not getting any chances for performances, on radio and on TV.

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

Sometimes I try to go and watch other bands (not always possible when you have a little daughter and you have your own band and so on), I try to help other musicians, and I sometimes buy CD's of other local bands.

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

Someone with good connections. At least in Belgium you really need that, if you want to be able to play on summer festivals, like our band.

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