BT- Can you describe your musical style?

MMD- It is so difficult for me to pinpoint my own musical style as I play the way I feel like playing. I recent months I have been humbled by generous music reviews on my Self-titled EP. Musical journalists from around the globe seem to be drawn to strong comparisons like that of Malstreem and Satriani. I am perfectly OK by that, as those are two extremely talented guitar players. To be compared to them is a privilege.

BT- What are you listening to right now?

MMD- You know, I really don’t listen to anything specifically. I like all genres of music. I draw inspiration from whatever catches my attention. If I hear something I like, I zero in.

BT- Where do you see yourself a few years from now?

MMD- I’d like to be collaborating more with other musicians and expanding my guitar contributions to different kinds of music.
