When I was 10
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be? (Max 10 words)
Don’t stop working
Which is the part you enjoy the most about your art?
Performing live has always been exciting but I also enjoy song writing a lot.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… In which aspects has your art helped you?
Helps get out emotions for sure, in song writing and in performing it’s an outlet for whatever you’re feeling in the moment.
What does your art mean to you?
It’s been my whole life, started when I was 10 and I’m 37 now so music has been the defining aspect of it so far.
Who are your idols?
I never liked the word “idols” but there’s a lot of people I look to for guidance and wisdom through family, friends, fellow musicians and historic figures.
If you didn’t like your art what would you like to do?
I’m a silversmith on the side so probably throw myself 100% into that other art form. Or something history related.
Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
Seems like there’s a lot more because of social media. It’s made it a lot easier to get your art into the world and harder at the same time because there’s so many amazing artists doing the same thing.
What would your idyllic life as an artist be like?
Write record perform my songs, hear them on the radio and be able to employ (and (
pay well) a full time band.
Which are your upcoming projects?
I have a new ep to release titles “Restless” working on the finishing that up and nailing down a release date. As well as constant silver working projects
