Interview by Tim Brown 

When and why did you start playing?

-I started with a Palmer guitar when I was twelve. I was so into rock music with my cousins that they motivated me somehow.

Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?

I have always had admiration for David Bowie. His style and ways to create things made a huge impact on people and I’m looking up to that too.

Were you influenced by old records & tapes? Which ones?

I have always liked retro and 80’s music too. Tears for Fears, Toto, Phil Collins, even Madonna sometimes. That essence full of synths and power still have some magic.

Who are your favorite musicians? Groups? CD’s?

All the way from the Stones, Bowie, Queen, Metallica, Poison, The Misfits, Nirvana, Gorillaz and many others too.

Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV

I’m willing to give some presentations soon. I’m just waiting for the right chance!.

What makes this kind of music “good” to you?

The one with a message mixed with a meaningful sound. Something real.

Why did you choose to play this kind of music?

Rock music have always been about energy, messages, revolution and life. Its what I identify myself the most.

Let’s Talk about your music and your last work…

On my first experimental record: “Save Rock n Roll” I made a conceptual EP and elegy about rock music. Four instrumental songs about four different decades of pure rock; the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s.
it’s up to the listener to detect each era and to enjoy once again, what “Rock Music” means to us.

How do you feel about the internet in the music business?

It’s the new thing! Of course radio and tv still are important, but what matter the most right now it’s where you are reading this.

11-What are the plans for the future?

I’m planing to explore more about the Synths. Probably using my voice too, I want to create new sounds and deliver something fresh, casual but deep at the same time.

12-How has your music evolved since you first began playing music?

If we talk about techniques, I just have improved that a little bit. The real part is I’m more mature creating sounds and concepts. Interesting enough to take a look.

13-Could you briefly describe the music-making process?

Lock myself up in the studio. Sit on my chair, close my eyes, and let the melodies come by on my imagination. Next, I try to transcribe it trough my computer or the instrument needed. Later on, comes the Mix of course and the Mastering.
