As a musician, it is my goal to inspire, entertain and make my audience forget the stresses that come with everyday life to feel better whenever my work is heard. I share my life experiences in a way that anyone can apply the lyrics and music to events in their life. Sometimes people think they may be the only ones who have gone through something, but the message I want to spread is that there is always someone who has gone through a hard time and that there are always ways to get through it. I want my music to be encouraging all while I stay true to my hard rock roots.
When I start my musical writing, it starts with the lyrics. I will write lyrics down as I experience certain events in my life. I write in a way that I know those who hear them will be able to connect and I usually finish with some kind of positive outcome. I will then create a musical piece separately and find the lyrics that I feel best connect with the music. Once those two elements are there I will piece everything together like a puzzle and add or remove parts until it all fits and gets the message across.
Currently I am taking a Bachelor Degree program for Audio Production at Berklee College of Music. Through the writing and recording of my music, I became interested in the Audio Production side of music. I started using Pro Tools without any training when I was writing my first set of demos and I wanted to learn more to make the recording process more efficient. Through taking the Degree program at Berklee College of Music, I would like to eventually be able to open my own studio to help other local independent artists be able to have an affordable and professional environment to get the best sound out of their musical creations as possible. This will also help me as I self-produce my own work so I can deliver the best representation of the music I create that I hope to inspire others with.
