I write and perform music to open hearts and help people discover who they are.
I'm self-employed, so every day is different for me! I spend a good amount of time during the day practicing, learning music, and writing. I also teach private music lessons. If I'm on tour, I often check out the city I'm in, go to a coffee shop and do some booking, and play shows at night.
There's a lot that you have to learn as you go. Persistence. Confidence. Willingness to fail and be vulnerable!
Here's the first step for college students
The most important step is to be courageous and not allow fear to stop you. If you really want it, you will find a way to make it happen. Don't listen to what people tell you about it being too hard. It's unconventional and unpredictable, but if it's in your soul, it's worth it. A college professor once told me, "You don't do music because you want to. You do it because you have to." So, if you have to do it because it's your greatest passion...go for it!!!
""It's too hard." "You'll never make it." "You're going to be a starving artist." "That's not a real job.""
