Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

Started off as just a singer in a rock n roll group when I was younger. Later added guitar and started to write all my own songs. Been playing in groups since I was 15, so 20 years now. Gotten very close to signing with a major label and now I’m just doing things at my own speed.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

 “Americana” or Rock n Roll, whatever you want to call it. It’s roots music, traditional rock n roll is what I like to listen to and it comes out in my songs. This song is based on people I’ve worked with in bars. Broken down, beat up, exhausted people that are just looking to let loose every now and then.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Roots Rock/Americana. I’m a singer/songwriter, grew up listening to a mix of punk and classic rock. This is the product of my influences. I’ve had meetings in the Sony building in Manhattan in my early twenties, and now I’m just trying to get people to listen to my songs. There have been a lot of ups and downs.

.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

It’s just me.

.

.

 

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I’ve been doing it 20 years. I don’t think I’ve been in “the music business” ever. I’m no good at business. I just want to be able to tour and play music to new people every night.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

People inspire me. When they are hurting mostly. I write out of sadness and anger. I write about people that need help.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

I’ve never made a hit song, so I don’t know. Listen to the Beatles, they did it a bunch of times.

.

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

My message is “no matter what life does to you, be yourself, it may not always turn out the way you want, but you’ll learn from whatever experiences you have.”

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Learn a trade. This is a terrible business to try to be a part of. If you must be a part of it, work your ass off at your songwriting.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

This is my second album, the first was solo acoustic. I like loud rock n roll with heart, so that’s the album I made. No one knows who I am, so I haven’t had any recognition quite yet, I’m working on that part.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

I write the songs alone, things just come to me, I don’t have a process. I go to a studio when I can afford it and I bring people in to play the instruments, when I can afford them.

.

 

Name five biggest artists that you like.

Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Jason Isbell, Jackson Browne and Joe Strummer.

.

.

.

 

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

Like I said, I write my songs alone, I have not collaborated with anyone. I don’t have any plans to collaborate with anyone in the future. This is just rock n roll, keep it simple.
