What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

I love being a musician, because of the impact I can make on peoples lives! Music moves people like nothing else... It takes you back to place in time, it evokes emotions like nothing else, it can mend a broken heart, or it can be your anthem.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?


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

I honestly would pay off my debt that I've accumulated trying to chase my dreams as an artist. and take my wife on the honeymoon that we never got to have.
