Today, someone asked me.. "How do you keep going?" My answer was; "It isn't hard. I love music, I love singing, I love the listeners. I love what I do!"
I was born the youngest of a large musical family and so, I learned early in life that I had to give it my best or else be ignored.
Being competitive against older siblings caused me to grow as a musician and truly master the craft of songwriting and performing.
Now as an adult I can see that there is no winning or loosing at music. The goal is to touch the heart of the listener and leave them healed in some small way.
