Discuss how you develop your melody.
Everything starts with the lyric…..or a bass line!
Tell us your source of inspiration.
God, dreams, dog, nature, ocean, friends…
Tell us the most memorable experience in your music career.
Every time I go on stage it is memorable. I love to perform and these are my most memorable times.
Discuss how you build your song.
I often start with a bass line, because I am a bass player. This particular song I wrote on keyboards…..I had just bought a new program and was messing around with some sounds and came up with the oriental flavored intro figure.
Tell us how you ensure your music inspires others.
I share my deepest feelings…..doubts, hopes, fears, and dreams. I try to paint a picture with my words and music so that the listener can really experience what I felt during the time I was composing the song.
Discuss the relevance of promotion to the music business.
I am trying new things…I am much more of a creator and introvert than I am a promoter or talker……I wish I had someone else to do this part!
Tell us what you will do apart from music.
That is all I am doing right now. I play in three different bands; doing my own and a few other singer-songwriter materials…I play bass and keyboards in these groups.
List the names of the instruments you can play.
Bass and keyboard…
Tell us if you have any music background.
Yeah…..I’ve been writing and playing for the past twenty years…..since I was a kid…I graduated from music school at Berkeley in Boston, too. I have also taught music…..band, and chorus in a high school.
State your future goals.
Be able to play in front of a larger audience with more time to rehearse and great sound.
Share your recording experience with us.
I have spent hundreds of hours in the recording studio, both on my own and on other’s projects. I could talk about this subject for days…..
Tell us the most difficult part of the recording.
Capturing what is in the artist’s head onto the recording.
Discuss the greatest mistake you have ever made in your music career.
Haven’t made any great ones…..everything I do wrong is a lesson.
Elaborate on the song.
I was very confused by the disconnect that I observed all around me….people were substituting technology for actual interactions, and it made me think about that word….”Remote”….then the words just flowed!
