I started writing songs at the age of sixteen.
Since then, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to play those songs live across the country, perform and collaborate with some of the greatest musicians and artists that I’ve ever met, meet some of my heroes, and share the stage with artists that have truly inspired me. I have composed hundreds of songs. I’ve seen words that I’ve written tattooed on people’s bodies and plastered on facebook walls. I’ve seen shirts, stickers, websites, posters and marquees with my name on them.
I have been robbed, stiffed money by venues, broken down on highways in unfamiliar areas, been fucked over by record labels, managers and other musicians, and gone into massive amounts of debt. I’ve loved every second of it, though. I’ve made friends all over the U.S. of A. This year, I finished recording a full-length album that has taken me nearly five years to complete, and creatively has pushed me further than I’ve ever been.
I am thankful for life, love and volume. I am thankful for the ability to turn up just a little bit louder. I wouldn’t trade making music for anything.
I can’t thank all of you enough for the love and support that you’ve shown me. Whether you’ve bought merchandise, come out to a live show, shared a song with your friends, or even just sent some kind words my way, every little bit matters to me, and I appreciate it more than you could ever know. Have a happy holiday, guys.
