Q: Love your music first . Was it hard to go after your dream ? How many people stood in your way ? Was there a time you wanted to give up ?

A: Thanks for your kind compliment. It is always difficult to go after your dream, but it is more difficult not to. When it comes to commercial success, or trying to make a living making music sometimes it seems that almost everyone is standing in the way and the obstacles seem endless; as for artistic success, the only one standing in the way is me. I never wanted to give up, but there have been times, and there still are times when I feel compelled to. So far, I'm still pushin' on! Thanks so much for your questions.
