Engaging with my work and trying to connect with it! In terms of helping spread the word, inviting folks to 'like' my music page, adding them to events I host and sending them private messages with links to my work and a little intro are great! The personal touch is always nice :) Thanks Minnie !!!!! xBG

Q

What is your process for writing your music?

Was that Dustin Hoffman's voice at the beginning of Futile and Fooled? And if so, where did you get it?

And what is the deal with that B&W pic of you with a bullet hole in your head and a gun in your hand?????? #disturbing #nowonderyoulikeamericanpsycho #hashtaghabit

Q. What is your process for writing your music?
A. I don't write songs often but I journal a lot and take phrase from there to develop, words and music at the same time.

Q. Was that Dustin Hoffman's voice at the beginning of Futile and Fooled? And if so, where did you get it?
A. That's New York State senior Senator Chuck Schumer - I sampled him from Cspan.

Q. And what is the deal with that B&W pic of you with a bullet hole in your head and a gun in your hand?????? #disturbing #nowonderyoulikeamericanpsycho #hashtaghabit
A. That's the single cover for 'Destruction' - I'm looking into a handgun reflectively, it's appropriate for the song but I hate guns in general and kinda regret it.





Ha,
