If he yeah we had a really did time. Doing an open slam instead Gramm listening party with them just actually last week since they have your stuff out so I wanna totti first about how you got started playing music. I started relatively. Late I feel like. From what usually people start playing and I need I thought our plane when I was like seventeen actor playing guitar I'm 28 now looked spent eleven years. Cool yeah. What media decide to start playing I always like mr. Annan drums younger I played but I didn't play like I never played in bands during the night that I had jumped to eradicate it and the master on like top ten and then. I started with Qatar I had always wanted to play and I never tried euphoria and actually try it here than. I dislike really spelling it came right rather easy to me that purse again. Now someone that has never heard your music before is not familiar with you you're all one man band how did you decide to go that route as opposed to meeting people and doing the traditional route I. I played it quite a few other bands aren't started not US played and he's so far despite not like really. Big band is like you know the play I don't think they played we played. There are many big at all you I'm not certain that thing because I didn't really like their style of music I guess and I know that'll like every other people and musicians in the area like the same music I just couldn't really get a hold anybody at the time I figured out that he's let them. It's make their rather from year to get around this play. Can you there with people who are listening exactly what your processes like how do you do your sat up what one dollar you playing when you're playing. Hello what myself right now is I display cake from what might foot and then idiot I have. What my other foot and have played a part the same time and the locals and that it right now wanted to try. In a little bit more of a incorporate other things I've never won their bit spew their subprime demise and yeah hopefully you know what what are. Do it now like port per mile. Can try to expand at some point. I mean I think that there is always room for ambition and it's really cool that. That this is the most that you decided to take 'cause I couldn't imagine trying to get up on stage and do everything I hit a public that they're half. And having the coordination like how does that work exactly I mean you may be you don't have to have an answer for that but how how do you feel like it works against. I played her a lot of Alec and I tapped my eat better than I did started given that authority implying an appointment there and I like Ali what to do that. And I honestly don't like call from Mike I watched the video of Paul McCartney doing now. Blackbird in the back in court and I did likewise DX look really cool and by argument and I get placed at similar concept of keep it rid of what your feet you know I was perfect speculate you know complain like. The sound economic. And I feel like I'm I really like Alec plays like rock and roll like it either marketable scientists Cilic and have it sit split the kind of plot you know. I agree with that sealed and I think that if he's tried to pull it off. You know as a perfectionist that it wouldn't it would have the same vibe you get me peer pressure so put you mentioned Paul McCartney who else are you influenced by.

Love that I stop acting like he's just saying like oh it is. Therapeutic like people can make that loud music like today is not air in particular that feeling like there's a purity to it that I just laden the older stopped. That's the kind of music that I really like Chile am influenced by his older kind of music that stated I get it felt kind of popular but it does not. As popular that blood marrow cell. Yes and I am I really like what you said about the purity of in the simplicity of it there's definitely something about that era of music event it's just so straightforward.
