Ghost In The Gum Tree


I started my first band in 2014. We were together for four years under different names and with different guitarists, but in 2018 we split up. Since then I've been trying to put another band together to no avail. Now I've deiced to try going out on my own solo career.







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

Music is an outlet hat gives me total control. Like when a writer sits down in front of their blank page the empty track allows me total control over everything happening.

What is your music dream?

I want to write original music that people enjoy.

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

I would try to help people understand each other. Know your neighbors problem and try to help but don’t neglect your own.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Owl City, Led Zepplin, Robert Johnson, Sublime, Imagine Dragons

What inspires you to make music?

I come from a family of musicians so it was something I was raised into.

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

My music is something to listen to when you need to relax, it's not too fast but not too somber.

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

I feel excited and a little nervous. I've always gigged as a drummer so sitting in back if you screw up at least most people won't notice.

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

The musicians' reality is nothing like in previous years. Anyone anywhere can start making music as long as they have a computer. Becoming a musician is something more and more people can do nowadays and I wouldn't change anything about that.

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is a great place for musicians to meet and network.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

What frustrates me most is meeting another musician who thinks he's all that and acts cocky and arrogant, then gets on stage and sounds like a dying cat.

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

I occasionally go to open mics, I see local bands play, and I try to attend any live performance downtown I can.

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

Patience and work ethic. You need patience because it will take a long time and you need work ethic because it's not going to be easy and you're going to have to spread your music everywhere you can.
