How did you begin making music? Who introduced you?
I started writing at 16, pushed my pen game till 2010 when I hit the studio and started recording full songs, it was always a personal thing for me to be able to express my feelings through music.
What was your musical education?
I didn't attend any music schools, I am self taught.
When did you realise that making music could be a way of life for you?
As soon as the positive feedback came through i was elated, I knew then that I could make something of this music.
What is your creative process?
I need to be inspired by a beat, I hear it and I just go to work, once I've wrote everything I record at the studio.
When do you have your most lucid moments, in the morning or night?
Night for sure, its tranquil for me.
Have you ever awoken with a melody created from your dreams?
I do that a lot, I forget quick if I don't rush for the pen 7 pad.
How do you know when a song is finished or needs no more changes?
You can just hear if you're a good enough musician.
How did you discover your creative territory? How would you describe it?
All I had was my room and a pen & pad so I didn't choose my creative territory. It chose me.
What part of your job is your least favourite?
The snakes in the music business and other competing 'artists' locally.
How often do you practice?
How do you feel right before going out on stage?
Very, very nervous, I can't shake that feeling and I never will.

Anything from 2pac to Jimi Hendrix, I listen to a lot of broad genres, I'm far from being close minded.
What type of music do you detest?
None, it's all creativity.
What other things have you done to make a living?
Work the regular 9 to 5, you need to work to make ends meet, making music isn't free.

Work hard, don't disrespect anyone & don't work with everyone that throws you a bone, music is a game.
