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


Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

There’s so many!

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

So many!

What inspires you to make music?

This is what I’ve always loved to do and I’m the most passionate about it

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

Live well, love well, always be happy

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


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

A lot of online marketing and promotion, a lot of social media, playing a jam packed venue one night, then to 3 people at a corner bar the next. Up and down roller coaster. It could be improved by people paying live musicians more. It’s a lot of work to buy gas, haul a PA, set up PA and instruments and THEN play all night for $100 It could also be improved by streaming companies giving the creators a fair share, not .0000000000000001 cents a stream

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it’s pretty cool! Just discovered it. I like how there’s discussions going on about useful topics, and it’s cool how you can earn money by reviewing music.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Other musicians not treating it seriously, like a business

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

Yes! I’ll go to shows when I’m not performing. I’ve done some drum sheds with some local drummers too

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

VERY good at social media and other public platforms online. Not afraid to submit their music to streaming platform curators and influencers. People person
