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

Music is the ultimate escape. It transcends language by speaking something the soul can hear.

What is your music dream?

I'd love to retire as an audio engineer. Helping young bands bring their dreams to life. I'd love to continue submitting music for film, games, and television.

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

Humanity's need to wait until the last moment to advert crisis.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Pink Floyd's "High Hopes"

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Jon Gomm, Leprous, Porcupine Tree, The Dear Hunter, Pink Floyd, A Perfect Circle, Radiohead, Tool, Massive Attack, Haken, Animals As Leaders, Devin Townsend, Silversun Pickups. Manchester Orchestra.... to name a few.

What inspires you to make music?

Experiences, emotions, the desire to inspire others to feel what music makes me feel.

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

With music, we are never alone. Someone, somewhere out there, as told a story we all have felt.

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

Electrified. There's nothing better than performing in front of a crowd of people who appreciate what you do.

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

The reality for musicians is that it's a dying industry dictated by people who will market you only if it sells their "idea" of what people should be listening to. Artists deserve a fighting chance to make a good living doing what they love.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far... so good.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Giving away my music for free to people who don't take the time to listen.

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

I support my local scene by attending shows, buying merch, and inviting other bands to join us on the stage.

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

Musicians, on top of being performers, also have to be sales people. You have to be willing to take risks and market yourself well.
