Discuss how you develop your melody.
Growing up in Texas, I listened to a lot of Spanish music and love the minor keys.
Tell us your source of inspiration.
I love Days of the New, an alternative band from the 90s.
Discuss how you build your song.
I record a riff, solo over it until I find something I want to record.
Tell us how you ensure your music inspires others.
I don’t. If it happens, it happens.
Discuss the relevance of promotion to the music business.
If people don’t know it’s there, they won’t listen to it because it will be difficult to discover it, so promotion is very important.
Tell us what you will do apart from music.
I will help others to record their music.
List the names of the instruments you can play.
I can play guitar, bass, and drums.
Tell us if you have any music background.
I was in a band in school and self-taught guitar since 13.
Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist on entering the music chart.
Perfect is the enemy of done.
State your future goals.
My future goal is to record people more than I record myself.
Share your recording experience with us.
My studio is in Austin and is great with professional equipment.
Tell us the most difficult part of the recording.
Not focusing on engineering when you should be artistic.
Discuss the greatest mistake you have ever made in your music career.
Nothing so far!
Discuss the relevance of music.
Politics will end the world and music will save it.
