Born in 1978, my father taught me how to play guitar at four years old. I had a vivid dream that year of standing on a stage in front of thousands of people playing my own music & making a difference. I have worked everyday since then to acheive my goal.I began singing in my brother's bar band when I was 6 years old & was playing keyboards for the group when I was 8. When my brother quit the band in 1984, I became a bass player practically overnight. It was truly my niche. I had never felt power like that before. I had control over the audience, command of the stage, & the power to overcome my own insecurities...all through music. I wanted people to leave my shows feeling every emotion possible and I worked on my delivery constantly...on and off the stage. Although I have had no musical training, I have managed to perform regularly and somehow channeled the creation of music from somewhere. I give it up to God for without Him I would have no possible way to play & sing this way...let alone know exactly what it was that I was supposed to be doing. He has a purpose for me and I have every intention of carrying out his master plan. Because of my passion for music, I believe I will have the greatest impact that way.
I have not been writing long, but have complete determination to be one of the best. I want to be different & unique, and since everything has been done, it's often difficult to create something new, but I will.
Like all new artists, you determine your style & genre, and since I was raised on country music, tapped into bluegrass, had a love-affair with the blues and R & B before I discovered the power of rock...I was really sad that I couldn't be them all. In alot of ways, I will always be all of those things & it comes through in my performances.
One thing stood out about Rock music that was unlike any of the other styles of music that I played-THE ENERGY!! It was undeniable! I'm addicted to it. Just like people are addicted to drugs, some need money, some choose alcohol, some choose sex....I choose music.
I want my audience to feel like they are in control of their own destiny. That they can make a difference. I want them to embrace this energy, take it & use it to make a difference for themselves. Find your passion & deliver it...that's why we're here.
