Writing music is what I love to do! I like to experiment and blend different sounds together. It's always amazing to discover the moment when my speakers are genuinely reflecting what's in my heart. This creates an emotional feedback loop in me, and for this brief moment, I'm heard-- even if it's only by me.
Where did the music come from?
We had a piano in the house when I was a boy, and I always loved to make fun little rhythms with my teeth. I should also give some credit to my Sonicare toothbrush! That thing is AWESOME to hum along with. This is how many of my melodies begin-- while brushing my teeth!
How'd you get started?
In 2012, I decided to break through my fears and share some of my melodies with the world. The first songs that I recorded were rough. REALLY rough. I'd already been dabbling with music production for a few years, and I owned Sonar X1. So I hooked up a mic, sang acapella, slapped on some reverb and I layered a few tracks together. The production value was poor, but I noticed that these recordings contained something real, something valuable-- they contained a deep part of me. So I kept going.
How has music impacted you?
Music offers me a method of communication that I never thought was possible. It gives me a way to share my deep joy and brokenness with others, and I'm amazed to hear from people who identify with it. The music is a way for me to celebrate Life. Each song is a testament of victory in the face of the hopelessness that once held me.
I like how Victor says it...
"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent." - Victor Hugo
