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

Music to me is a person's use of an instrument to convey their past, present, or future emotions through a series of different pitches to construct a song and tell a story that resonates with themselves and others. Music gives me joy and a constant drive to create and inspire others.

What is your music dream?

To continue to be happy playing music and helping others make their musical vision come to fruition.

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

make war obsolete.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

...And Justice for All by Metallica.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

That's pretty easy for me: Mastodon, Metallica, Opeth, Caligula's Horse, Baroness, Tesseract, and Toska

What inspires you to make music?

Literally, everything I see and hear.

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

Not really much of a message as in something linear but more along the lines of people using their minds to make out what that message might be that they hear in my music(if any).

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

Never done it, I assume I would be a bit nervous though but excited at the same time.

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

Really depends on what genres you are looking at and how the industry affects their work ethic within that genre. I'd say for the most part the whole music industry needs to be reformed to embrace the artist's work as a piece of art and not just a sales figure for their own personal gain.

What do you think of Drooble?

I like it so far and definitely think it has tons of potential.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Being in a band where the creative process is one-sided to where I have to do all of the heavy lifting, especially when it comes to the recording/mixing/mastering.

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

I try to, there isn't much of a music scene where I live but if I have the time I'll try and go to a show or two.

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

I think the biggest one is having the drive to not just stop halfway and start something else or just stop period. You have to start something and see it through if you ever expect to see any return from it. No one is going to do it for you, as an individual, you are responsible for pursuing your own goals in this world.
