He says: I'm inspired when I discover new music by original and creative artists, and also good music from the past that I may have missed or not listened to for a long time. I express my deepest emotions through my music. Sometimes in song, and sometimes instrumentally. It's "a love divine, a precious thing. It makes my cry, it makes me sing.
