|When did you realise that making music could be a way of life for you?
Already in age of 3! ;) My mum talled me many times that when I was crying and then when I heard music I automatically stopped ;-D so we can say that music wa with me from the very beginning :-) I just knew that music is exactly what I want to do in future!
I remember when I was only 4 or 5 years old, in a country western bar in Amarillo, Texas where my mom worked, I watched a band perform with a female percussionist. I'll never forget how it made me feel to watch her. That was the first time I knew it was my destiny.
Since then, after many twists and turns, I finally made it to Austin, Texas and Los Angeles, California, where I immersed myself in many music scenes, playing solo at open mikes and finding jam sessions to participate in. I received much positive attention I needed, in order to continue on with the challenging struggle of surviving in the world and also being creative and authentic.
always, there was no other choice
When i finished College.
when I realized that there was some work or profession that I liked as much as I enjoy making music.
From day-dot, I wanted to have it all. Although it was only until I got to about age 19 that I really started making music I was comfortable with and could see doing well in the charts.
Once Markus began making music his full time career, he needed me to help him with things. Eventually it became clear that this was our path. That making music was taking all my time and it was what I wanted to do, to be part of the process.
The first time I got paid for it, I guess? I mean, that might seem bleak, but, you never really feel like a professional until someone gives you a dollar.
I realized music was what I wanted to pursue when I went into the studio at age 15 and got a great response from my music.
When I realized no one around me had an immense knowledge of hip-hop, not only limited to artists, but technique, skill, and the many other components that come together to form something bigger than man.
when I picked up the bass guitar at the age 17 I almost instantly knew that music would be at the forefront of my life until I died.
I have always felt it. but it really hit me at 12 years old and all I did was write my feelings down and paint a picture with my words because I have the passion that a lot of people want or miss its something I've always wanted to do music.
I loved the fact that you could get music on record before anything else. I remember doing parties in kid's basements filled with people and smoke from incents. If you play a song for a girl she was hanging with you all night. I made mixtapes of the stuff I wanted to hear and people and friends just followed. It made me money as well. There were a ton of positives.
when I started writing songs and performing them for people, I realized that it was great to be able to do something I really enjoyed, that made people feel good.
Its all I ever wanted to do.
