Debut Release - "Matter of Time"



No matter what stage of life, music has and always will be apart of my life. Music truly fascinates me; it's like a universal language that has the power to bring people together, speak into lives, and it can create emotions and connect with feelings that sometimes you never even knew were there before.

Growing up I was heavily involved in sports and I went on to compete at the college level in wrestling. Music sporadically surfaced throughout my years of growing up.

I began writing lyrics in early high school because it was the easiest way for me to express what I was feeling. I was never great at expressing how I felt out loud; so I wrote to get things out of my head and then I'd continue on with my day.

I sang in a cover band in High School mostly performing Blink182 and MXPX covers. When I went off to college I purchased my first guitar and began picking up chords in my free time from books and friends. Once I learned a few chords I was able to turn my lyrics into melodies and that sparked the beginning of my new found passion.

The fulfillment I got from finishing my first song was amazing. Looking back, the song itself wasn't amazing, but the rush of excitement was instant. I look at writing songs as a puzzle; trying to fit the right chord, melody and lyric together in a way to express an exact moment in time.

With a few songs under my belt I started playing as many open mics as I could during my first few years of college. Over the last few years I’ve been blessed with opportunities to open for bands such as Sanctus Real and Jeremy Riddle. In 2008 I saved up for and funded my debut cd Matter of Time.

My goal while writing and recording the album was to keep it real, relatable and as accessible for anyone listening. Every song was written the last few years of college and song themes range from overcoming self-doubt, going through changes, finding purpose, along with a few love songs.

Music is always something that will be apart of me and my hope is to bring hope, break people from fears and help others find what they're passionate about.
