Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
At school playing in a band that did cover versions of different songs. Getting bored just copying people made me want to write and record my own songs.
Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?
Driving home one evening and hearing The first song I had ever written being played on the radio had to stop the Car and didn’t stop smiling for about an hour.
What has been the high point of your music path?
Hooking up with PJ and Joe realizing anything is possible we’re only limited by our imagination.
So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
No specific process. Songs are triggered by other artists, personal emotions, relationships, feelings, sounds or something as simple as two chords on the piano.
What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?
An even playing field where all artists get the same opportunities not just the ones with the money men behind them. A more open approach to showcases.
If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
Jimi Hendrix what really made him tick.
What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
Mostly a lot of fun. But the serious business of getting things right is also in there.
Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
Tears don’t last 4 Eva. About a really hard break up and lost love. When you really love someone but you know it’s never going to stand the test of time.
What's coming up in the future? Hopefully a Christmas hit record and some new tracks and gigs next year.
