M-Rock: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Discipline, Soul, Persistence

 

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m a guy who loves good music, food and people.

Why do you do what you do?

I do it because it expresses a good feeling and it’s something I’d like to succeed at.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

This is a really tough question I can’t properly answer, but the family I’ve had, the friends I’ve made and the people that reached out to me are the catalysts for events that led me to choose music.  I’ve always wished I could do this since I could remember, but knowing it was feasible was something I considered around 2009.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Hardest obstacle to face was my own fear that this could never work out, and constantly expecting failure.  Negativity in a nutshell.  Friends tried to help but what helped most was blessings and putting my head down to work.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Of course, many things inspire me, but I’d say it’s my favourite artists, and nowadays it’s people like Adam Feeney, Mark Ronson, Drake, anything that sounds good.  Have I inspired someone directly? All the time - I’ve seen peers of mine appreciate my work, and then head in similar directions.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

One? Millions of mistakes, but again, biggest one was just not having a positive outlook enough to persist and see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Kingsway music libraries and writing my own shit with people I work with and hope to work with.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

I’d say, forget you even exist and love everything in your path - your work, your friends, your girl, your family etc.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Man, this weather has made my temperature change too much, it’s been a long sweaty day with Easter.
