What is your first and most important goal as a musician – to tell a story (literally via lyrics or metaphorically via music); to inspire an emotion; to lift a mood; to get people moving? Perhaps it’s something else, or a mixture of these?
Does your style reflect that of the artists you love or respect most?
Do you write music, and if so, what sort of mix is involved in terms of discipline and inspiration?
Name an artist or band who is, in your view, criminally underrated, and explain what it is about them or their sound that excites you?
How do you keep up or improve your skill levels? Is it all about practice, or are there other factors that help you to get better at and understand more about your craft?
