I grew up in church, so I've been singing as long as I can remember. My parents also introduced me to most of the heavy hitters of rock and blues very early - Hendrix, Clapton, The Beatles, B.B. King, etc. Growing up in the 90s wasn't a bad time for music either - Nirvana, Pearl Jam, U2, etc. By middle school, I tried drumming, wasn't great at it, so I picked up a guitar and was hooked. By college, I started writing, and by now, I'm just hoping to turn passion into sustenance.
