I remember the moment when my love for music began.
I was about 8 years old, my mom had left for the store, and it was just my dad and I at home. My dad called me into the living room where he had a huge stereo system. He sat me down on the coach and said to me, "Just listen."
He then preceded to play a song by Def Leppard, so loud that the walls nearly shook. It was a turning point for me. I remember sitting there basking in rock n roll glory thinking, "What is that? ... Whatever it is, I want more."
Now, does the music that I play and write sound like Def Leppard? No. But there was this feeling I had while listening to their music all those years ago that has drawn me ever closer to this art again and again.
I dove into learning guitar shortly after that encounter, and over time my love for music grew. It became an outlet for me, a way to express myself. More than that, music became a safe haven: a space where I was able to be vulnerable and authentic. In my time as a musician, I've played in bars, churches, and many places in between. Music has given me the opportunity to travel to great places and meet some truly great people.
My goal is simply to be real in my craft, to be myself, and to hopefully help others to do the same.
This year, I'll be recording my first album. I would love for you to partner with me. Find out more by clicking below.
