Q & A

How do you describe your music to people?

02.01.18

Varied musical styles with wry lyrics and plenty of innuendo and fun.

How do you feel about musical award competitions?

02.01.18

Music lends itself more to collaboration than competition. Recognition is always nice. It helps those who are building a career, especially young artists.

If you could be any character from history, who would it be?

02.01.18

Can’t think of one. I like being me.

Name a pet peeve.

02.01.18

Mean people and bad automobile drivers. I know that’s two, but sometimes they are one and the same.

Name a recent personal food trend.

02.01.18

I do not understand what a “food trend” is, so I can’t put a name to anything. Does a musician’s personal food preferences make them better musicians or culinary experts? Strange request.

Tell us about your worst gig.

02.01.18

I can’t think of a worst gig. I’ve been in some bands that did not have very good musicians. I’ve had to deal with some difficult venues, management and promoters. Mostly, I just continue to learn, move on and try to improve.

What artist or band are you a little embarrassed to love, and why?

02.01.18

I’m never embarrassed when it comes to enjoying good music. Why? Because you either like something or you don’t. Simple.

What did you want to be when you were 7?

02.01.18

8.

What drives you to keep playing even though the music industry can be so harsh?

02.01.18

Harsh? You mean like hard work? What drives me always is my love of music. It’s just what I’ve been doing all my life.

What was the first song you learned to play?

02.01.18

“Für Elise” for piano when I was 7.

What's a big musical inspiration that would most surprise your fans?

02.01.18

George Gershwin and Hoagy Carmichael. Not really sure if those influences would surprise my fans, though.

What's something most of your friends don't know about you?

02.01.18

My friends know all they need to know. Others? Not so much.

What's your favorite jam from the '90s?

02.01.18

Smuckers Apricot-Pineapple.

What's your favorite local artist/group?

02.01.18

The current version of Mind(x) is comprised of some of the best musicians in Sacramento.

Who is your secret star crush?

02.01.18

If I told you, it would not be a secret now, would it? Besides, what is this? Junior high? Never been asked this before, but I’ll let the GRAMMY people know their questionnaires may be lacking next time they accept my music for nominations.

You're given a magic wand. What do you do with it?

02.01.18

Depends upon what kind and degree of magic the wand has, I guess. Perhaps I’d play it like a musical instrument, or perhaps I would make world peace occur.
