Why this name?
Someone said invent a I did.
Do you play live?
Not any more. All material is now studio based as I work as a songwriter rather than a performer - although I do perform, record and produce all the material I write.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It has created far more opportunities for independent musicians to be heard and to market their own music. Many musicians collaborate at an international level via the web which makes music production quicker and easier.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
As a writer my involvement is with publishing and licensing contracts.
