Hi Mark! It is great to chat with you!
What have you been working on lately?
I have a new album coming out in March, and the 2nd single "Boundary Layer" is releasing this Friday Jan 14, Yay! In addition, I have been adding some new "haikus" set to musical vibes on my IG channel (finally learning to use Reels!). I have some live shows in Houston this month as well. All in all all a busy start to the new year.
If there were no roadblocks between you and your dream project, what would that project be?I would be very excited to have some regional tours and festival performances. COVID has really put a damper on playing live, and I really miss being out more often. A "stretch" goal for me would be to play SXSW or ACL! Maybe open for NEEDTOBREATHE or The Wallflowers, Vance Joy ore the Lumineers. My super dream would be to open for John Mayer. If you could have dinner with an artist past or present and get to talk to them about music, who would it be?I think Jason Mraz would be great person to have dinner with. I would be interested to see where his inspiration comes from and whether his personality is quriky like his music. What do you do when you have writer's block or a creative block? Any go-to ways to shake yourself out of it?Rollerblading! (or running). I find getting out and exercising really frees my mind and after the 1st hour, I can feel all of the "stresses" for life really fading away and my creatively rushing back in. How do you stay motivated to keep creating? I find inspiration in many places in my life to share a positive view point. I find the news channels (and many people) to have lots of negative vibes, and it really makes me want to create a new "positive vibe" narrative. I find my creativity sparks in the morning best, usually when I first wake up and am thinking "haiku" writing. What has been the biggest game changer in your career this far? Putting out my 1st original album. I learned so much working with the amazing professionals that are part of the US music studios. I had some appreciation for the skill and versatility before being on this journey, now I really am amazed by what they can do. Challenging myself to write and perform at that level has really moved the needle for me. What is inspiring you right now?Our shared struggles with COVID and the negative vibes that all of the isolation is causing on humanity. I really feel the need to get out and share "positive vibes" with everyone as often as I can (it really helps me too!). Do you have any upcoming projects you want us to know about? Album release in March, new single this Friday
Please let everyone know how they can keep up with you and your music!
