What motivated you to pursue your passion?

The True Love of Music and making music made me start emotionally processing melodies and moods that came from the radio and my parent's record collection when I was very young as early as 3. I eventually learned to play the guitar, drums, and piano, then writing my own songs then trying to Sing them. So its the Love of Music that started me up and keeps me going .

Who inspires you the most?

I am most inspired by my children, but musically I'm inspired by Quite a few Artists, past and present, too many to mention.

How do you handle the various challenges surrounding what you do?

I think I handle it well because of my children, they energise me and keep me focused on Life itself . I live an ironic existence of having exceeded expectations creatively yet failed miserably at monetizing my work so the success is 100% Rock Solid in terms of what my fans get from my music and my live performances but the failure aspect has been about trying in vain to go beyond these shores to share the music with the World "in a Substantial way " Still trying, never giving up .

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I would like to still be alive, as a Father, and a Musician, doing the do and staying ambitious regardless.

What advice would you give to someone up and coming?

If you get into this for the wrong reasons you will be chewed up and spat out very quickly by the machine. Do what you Love, Love what you do, and be TRUE to yourself. There is no meter in existence that could measure Success, there is no Time limit to becoming successful and make everyday count .
