60 Second Quiz
- How did it feel to hear your song played all over the airwaves?
Surreal and a real buzz!
- Did you have any pre-conceived ideas about the music industry?
Yes I did when I was younger. But I think that life is what you make it anyway. I am one of the lucky ones, I know what I love doing in life. I know alot of people that don't.
- Do you write your own songs?
What's your inspiration? Yes I do write my own stuff. Just about everything. I have a very big CD collection that I'm always listening to. I just love to listen to music and as soon as I hear something that makes me go wow! I have to pickup the guitar or go to the piano and start writing.
- What music/artists do you listen to when you are not playing your own?
To much to really say. I have so many CDs from really heavy stuff to Jazz, folk and classical stuff.
- What's next? Tour/Album/Single?
I've made a proposal to some friends of mine and hopefully the band will be back in the studio recording an EP or something.
- Was there a moment you contemplated throwing in the towel?
- Do you prefer performing live or recording?
A great gig is better then great sex. I also love to record, it has a really fantastic vibe about it. Everyone is really vibed and excited about the final result. That question is a 'toughie', I really don't know?
- What/who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?
I think it was more of an environmental thing. Most of the kids at my high school were playing in rock bands and it was the cool thing to do. I also had to choose between guitar lessons or extra Math's classes.
- What is the biggest challenge you have faced along the way to your musical success?
A band I was in, that at the time meant everything to me. It fell apart I had to start from scratch. I was only the guitarist and backup singer. So to front my own band for the first time in my career was a very big step for me.
