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

Music is another language. It speaks to us on a level that doesn't need words. It can evoke memories and emotions. It is a vary powerful thing indeed.

What is your music dream?

To make enough money playing that I can Quit my day job.

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

I wouldn't even begin to try.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Michael Jackson's Thriller CCRs Bad Moon which was the first song I remember singing along to. I had this portable take recorder and my mom gave me the tape. I wore that poor thing out just play rewind play rewind play.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

there are so many. what's in my playlist right now? The Creepshow,HorrorPops, Hard fall hearts, Necromantix.

What inspires you to make music?

I guess a really good scary story. I love to see people singing along with me because they know and identify with the song. sharing that connection with people. that is what makes it worth while.

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

l first I love old horror movies. they always had a simple moral to them. I try to convey that in my songs. Second, is to have fun, I love you see people dance in the crowd. Clap along, or even sing with me. Let the trouble you have go for a night and just have some fun.

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

At first before the show I'm super nervous. fidgety, hands shake a little. I feel like I wanna puke. But then, we walk out on stage and it all goes away. It's time to go to work. By the end of the first song we're having fun. and that's were I belong.

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

The music industry is changing. It's a lot harder to stand out. And there is allot more groups it there now. with home recording being so affordable. What could be improved..... just my opinion but id like to see more local artists be supported by media like the movie industry and radio. there are amazing musicians out there that don't want to do anything more then okay the local scene. they deserve the change to be heard with the music industry there way it is meow it possible and profitable. it's just that no one is doing it.

What do you think of Drooble?

it's interesting.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

I get frustrated when I see the same guitarist ,drummer, singer, or whatever in more then one band. There are hundreds of really talented musicians that would love to play in a band fighting hard for that opportunity. and here is this guy is Not, giving a ?% to one band, just going through the motions to collect a pay check. and if you notice all those bands sounds exactly the same. there nothing that makes them stand out. so there band just holding them selves back by allowing this guy to use them.It really turns me off from a band.

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

Absolutely, I go to as many shows as I can afford to.

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

Im not sure im qualified to comment on that.
