Music is the only faithful and dependable source thatcan bring me the peace and inspiration i need to keep creating and evolving as a artist and perfect example of what







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is what created the man i am today. It gave me an intimate and intense creative outlet to express and share my feelings and frustration, my dreams and fears, all the things i couldn't say in conversation or publicly i was able to convey with my songs and my guitar better than i ever could before. Music makes life infinitely better by reaching deep in your soul without judgment or resentment and lifts your mind to unprecedented levels of insight, understanding, creativity and compassion only music and deeply written lyrics can achieve. Being a musician, writing songs and playing guitar defined my character and personality. It brought a man out from deep inside i never knew existed and made my life infinitely better in so many ways.

What is your music dream?

Create a relatable, passionate and deeply reaching sound that connects with people in a personal and intimate way so they don't feel alone in this crazy and chaotic world. That my songs reach just 1 person thinking of suicide or depression issues, hopeless and misunderstood people like myself finding peace anf comfort but even more so the realization that your not alone in your fears or struggles, not an outcast or weirdo cause your thoughts and beliefs are different, and they see the hope and belief in thier lives that inspires and rekindles the fire inside us to blaze through the bullshit and ignorance we face daily.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Devoting our lives to peaceful, compassionate and loving ways instead of violence and destruction that seems to supersede rational thinking and common sense. Music reaches everyone in some way or another and it's up to us as creative thinkers and entertainers to bridge the gap with music that inspires greatness, brings out our best selves, closes the divide without fighting or unnecessary violence and shows what the true power of music can accomplish just by listening and understanding.. Its possible to do anything with the proper motivation and kick ass playlist guiding your path.
