I know there aren't many artists, or listeners, my age who are interested alternative pop and rock music.
I want to spread my love of this genre to younger listeners, for the teens who aren't into mainstream auto-tuned pop music.
I starting writing and composing music when I was nine, and I hope to continue as I grow as an artist.
I write the music, lyrics, and accompaniment for all of my songs.
I mainly use minimal background music, mostly piano.
My music is largely influenced by the styles of David Archuleta and Fun.
I am constantly writing, noting any thoughts or lyrics as I think of them, anywhere from my songbook, to my phone, to my bedroom wall.
It's easiest for me to express my feelings through music, with so many factors I can use to represent emotions that can't be described with one-dimensional words.
Many of my songs focus on the struggle of going through life with disabilities and other labels that define people as "different."
