Listening and speaking to so many talented artists, I would like to do a few more collaborations with some artists. It has also inspired me to continue on my musical journey, even though it is a financial struggle and hoping that it will one day be more financially lucrative, so that I can share my music with more people & be an inspiration for my students.

Who was your biggest support, and who you want to thank the most?

My wife is my biggest supporter. Having my best friend as my wife, who supported me through the good times as well as the bad. The unwavering support & advice from my family, friends and fans have helped me to continue composing and sharing my music for all to enjoy.

We are all eager to hear something new from you,what can your fans expect from you in the near future?

I hope to do some touring, as I would love for my fans to hear me play live, because you can instantly connect with the artist and his music. But of course, this will depend on sponsorship. I would love to tour with my whole band, but once again that may not be possible right now.

We don’t know is it a coincidence or destiny that Mr. Hankins won five awards on the fifth annual of the Indie Music Channel Awards, but we know for sure that each and every one of them are truly deserved. We congratulate Mr. Hankins, and we wish him nothing but success and happines.
