About: Martin McLaughlan
1). How much time do you spend writing, performing, and listening to music each day?
Most of my day, music is a massive part of my life. Whether I'm listening to it when I'm working, performing in the house or on stage or writing it generally takes up a massive part of my day
2). What does your family think about your music?
They like it, took them a while to realise that I was serious about it but they've been really supportive
3). What profession did you want to have when you were a child? Did you think that you would be a musician?
When I was younger I always thought I wanted to be a lawyer, then I left school and became a chef. I've always been interested in music, but I never thought I would write my own material and perform it for people.
4). What mood is the best for you to be in for writing music?
It varies, normally though I need to feel strongly about something, I can't write a song that has no meaning to me. Whether I'm in a cheery mood or quite emotional doesn't matter to me as long as I have a connection with what I'm writing.
5). In three words, describe the emotional characteristics of your musical style.
Heartfelt, Compassionate and Empathetic
