What has been a real high point in your career?
Putting on concerts on stage. Where I am the highlight act. Live band – covering different genres of music – including my own original music – in one show.
Who gave you the most support early on?
My mother was very inspirational. She got my sisters and I started in music at an early age. She also convinced my father to pay the lesson fees etc even during hard times with my father as a single earner working in a factory.
“Music brings people together.”
What does your work aim to say?
Music is a powerful tool with international appeal. Music brings people together. My work expresses myself and my love for music through my instrument.
Who or what inspires you?
My biggest inspiration is a good melody. Something that catches my attention as a listener/viewer. Other senses can be stimulated too – through video, concerts, etc
What words do you live by?
Love what you do – and/or learn to love what you do. (there will always be aspects of a job that are tedious/repetitive – even in a ‘dream job’)
What makes you laugh?
A good joke / sense of humour…and other people laughing…that can be contagious!
Continue in the music field…create new music…produce more videos, albums, entertain people…
What do you consider success?
Being able to share my love for music with the world…and pay the bills for my lifestyle.
