Knocked out in the Battle Rounds

Thank you from all of us at Opening Act and the MusiCares Foundation for helping us provide health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to musicians in their time of need.

What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

Being a musician is what makes me feel like me, The fact that people also want to listen to me sing and actually pay me to perform is pretty amazing. It is also enjoyable to have people sing along to my original songs.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

Besides my mentor Wade Cota, I think John Mayer is a genius.His guitar skills are obviously stellar, but vocally the tone of his voice is perfect. It takes restraint to let the melody and lyrics be the focal point of a song.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I would love to be able to use the money to continue my music career. I would love to be able to promote my songs properly and maybe make a video. It is difficult as a musician to know how to navigate the industry. I would like to get some advice.
