How did this new album and overall concept for it come about, and what are your ultimate goals with it?
This is the second EP form Rhythm Jets. The concept is in the name of the EP…...Velocity. Velocity means you are increasing speed in a determined direction. The ultimate goals are to score a Billboard Top 10 hit plus fill the calendar with festivals and shows for the band. That is VELOCITY!
What would you define as the most life-changing event so far in your musical career?
The most life changing event in my musical career happened in early 2011 when I got a virus inside my ears that left me not being able to function in any musical environment for 3 years. This was crippleing both Physically and emotionally. The great news is I finally did get past this life changing event of pain and depression. The result was the birth of Rhythm Jets and the music started to flow with a passion and appreciation that I cannot explain. It’s an incredible story that is still being written.
Who would you say has been the single biggest influence in your life in getting you to where you are now in your career?
GOD is the single biggest influence in life. It’s amazing the gifts given, the situations set in motion, and the people HE brings into my life. Not sure how anyone functions without acknowledging all things are in the creators hands
Who currently is drawing your attention as artists you’re excited about?
I find myself soaking up a variety of Genres and enjoying many aspects of them all. A couple of artists make me do a double take and that is Snarky Puppy and Dirty Loops. These cats are rhythmically insane with crazy talent in every corner.
What’s your absolute favorite part of the World, and why?
I love Europe. Its amazing to see the cities that are hundreds of years old, enjoy the history and culture that is so varied plus the amazing cuisine!
If you were magically allowed to spend an hour with whomever you chose in history… alive or dead… and really be able to get inside their head, who would that be?
I want to spend an hour with the Architect and head builder of the Pyramids. How did they do that?
