Interview With Singer/Songwriter - Roddan

Muzique Mag. When did you start making music and taking it serious?
" After years of playing lead guitar with other musicians, I became a bit frustrated working with their lack of direction and motivation to write new, original material."

Muzique Mag. Do you feel that the industry needs more artist like yourself?
"Not at all! There are so many talented artists in the world today, and our uniqueness is what gives the industry life and a pulse. What is needed, is more substantial revenue streams for artists to make a decent living."

Muzique Mag. Would you prefer to be independent or signed to a major?
"Based upon my research, being an independent is the way to go, i.e., retaining complete control of our art, and the direction the music goes over time."
