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

Music is an escape for me... it takes me places in my mind that no other form of media does. It evokes peace, emotion and a sense of well being for me

Beatles, Brian Eno, Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Alex Degrassi... really, too many to mention them all.

What inspires you to make music?

The need to release my creative energy. Lol!

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

I guess if I had a "message" it would be this: music isn't about how many notes you can play as fast as you can play them… most of my favorite music is the simple.

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

It's been 25 yrs since I've played live.... but it was always very exciting. The live audience and the bond between band mates, both combined into a very special feeling for me

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

I think it's much harder now to make money or even a name for yourself today than it was even 30 yrs ago. Desktop studios and social media has flooded the scene with people making music. One one level that a great thing, but the more fish in the ocean, the smaller your chance is of being caught

yes, I see local live bands fairly often
