What do you live for? Love and Unity!. and music is where I find I can express,execute, and project these feelings to others. I believe it is my calling in life to be a composer and performer of music. I come from a musical family, my mum and dad where both well respected musicians and used to travel all around the world expressing their music through their sound of gospel!. when I was a young boy they used to take me everywhere they toured, you can say I became inclined to the musicians way of living from a very early age.
What project ‘s’ are you working on? It is fair to say that I take all my projects very seriously!. I have various solo studio projects of which I undertake every week, In the spring of 2009 I created a band project called “Ataraxis Vibration”, of which includes myself on Vocals/Bass, along with Drummer – David Growcott, and Guitarist – Adam Healey, both superb individuals and musicians, We have since been perfecting our craft as the A.V. on and off stage, we have made a few independent recordings, the project is still in its primitive stages, a fruitful future awaits us!.www.ataraxisvibration.co.uk.
I have a few other offline projects of which I am building from the ground up, these are all forms of weaponry against the current state of the world of which I refuse to defuse, once to perfection I will be unveiling soon…The inspiration keeps on flowing..
What are your ambitions for your projects? No ambitions, but real projections to get in front of a mass of people in the name of inspiration and elevation!, these projects are all in the aim of projecting a bit of Positivity to this Negative world we live in.
Do you have any political views? No views, but visions, there is a place for politics somewhere in hell.
What are your religious views? “The Almighty” is not in religion!, but in relationship.. Realize.
What do you hope to fulfill in life? Indeed they are many Musicians who are fulfilled by the achievement of major album sales, many individuals built great structures on earth fulfilling their sense of pride, some have received many awards and accolades for their works and get fulfillment by this, However “ fulfillment” to me is a means to an end!, My reward or award cannot be found!, because I live for tomorrow!, My reward is when I find a new Idea to give to the people!, What I have and how I live no matter how big or small doesn’t matter to me, but what strength I have to give to the future is indeed my ultimate pleasure.
do you have any hobbies? Most of the time you will find me doing something with music whether it be, practicing performing,writing,composing, arranging, rehearsing,recording, listening or studying something!, however I do make time for other things in the day, I am interested in body fitness and conditioning, playing basketball, I’ve also recently found a love for martial arts, I guess the better the condition your body is in the better and longer the mind will operate..
