"Music has no border and I hope that people will tend to search more the history behind the music they listen too many of them will discover that their music was born or come from a culture that they despise or hate out of Ignorance of course exactly like the blues lot of people are not aware of the Impact of Islam on the American blues and Afro-American music as a whole."

"Technology had made making music much easier than in the past. The bad part of that is ANYBODY can do it! You don't need any instrumental proficiency, just an idea and some buttons! I'm looking forward to the return of the days when actually PLAYING an instrument is cool. Then music will have a "soul" again."

"When I found blues, I found freedom. Freedom to sing the pain, to wail, to moan, to feel. And with that ability to feel and to release also comes joy and celebration and humor, which you can also find in this music. Freedom to experience the pain and the joy of life. Blues is life."

"I think music improves lives in all kinds of ways. It offers people therapy on their own terms. Most musicians are weirdos, some are jerks, a few are worse than that, but almost all music seems to have the potential to help players and listeners through hard times. Playing music can be a public service. Seems like the world would be a better place if every job was like that."

"Music has always had a strong impact on people. In the past, blues music has told profoundly personal stories, it has highlighted a number of life problems as well as dealing with issues of a major consequence including war. I would like music to venture down this path; unfortunately, this philosophy is a little lost today."

"It used to be such a huge part of everyday life, I feel its been slightly de-valued these days. It makes me sad that most people younger than me will never own music, have a record collection etc. Music touches me more than anything in the world and that will never change for me and so many others."

"Music stirs the emotion in a powerful way, I would like it to encourage the good in people, I believe it’s important for artists to keep that in mind in this age of too much negative in our music and too much dissonance in our lives. Good music can give people a purpose, joy, and connection to others... even more of a connection when enjoyed with a good meal."

"I want it to bring people together through music. Blues and Roots music has that effect on me but I'm not sure what effect it has on socio-culture...It's a small niche this type of music and it's a close-knit community through blues societies and other organizations. That's one way of keeping people together and interested."

"Although in my attempt at creating a ‘musical adventure in time travel’ across many different ancient cultures, ranging from ancient-themed Biblical music, ancient-themed Egyptian music, ancient Mesopotamian-themed music, ancient Greek-themed music and ancient Roman-themed music, the one thing all my ancient-themed lyre music has in common, is hopefully evoking a sense of inner peace and tranquility – if my music can in turn,…Continue

"I’m sure music will stay. Music can’t die. Because, what is music? Music is sound, vibration, energy, speed, waves, the combination of things and people, so even if mankind is gone one day, there will still be sound in the Universe. And if the Universe is gone, something or someone will still be left making a noise."
