Where did the name Eclectic Vibe Tribe come from? EVT:  The name Eclectric Vibe Tribe came from my eclectic compilations of music. I'm passionate about any and all genres and didn't want to limit myself to just one. I combined the words eclectic and electric to describe myself as an artist and as a person. 'Vibe Tribe' is meant for my listeners to feel a part of the music. Without their support and feedback, I wouldn't be the great artist I am today. I want them to know that they're more than just a fan, they're a part of the tribe.

In three words, how would you describe your music? EVT: Psychedelic, electric, and refreshing... I hate to have to narrow it down to just three, but I believe that the three that I chose are a good start. I say psychedelic because I have done a lot of experimenting with the panning of my music to make you feel immersed in the production. I want to give the listener a new experience every time my record is played, so I put a lot of very subtle sounds and effects in the background of my tracks. I say electric due to the heavy electronic influences that can be heard throughout my work. My music is refreshing simply because it is in a league of its own.

What are your goals and aspirations for your music in 2016? EVT: Year to year my goals stay the same; produce better quality music and promote a positive environment for our tribe. For 2016, ultimately, I aspire to share with thousands of festival lovers the passion I put into my music and to hopefully gain more tribe members in the midst of it all.
