A way to make sense out of the world. Or at least a way to make sense out of how I feel about it.
That my music reaches somebody and affects them the way others' music has affected me.
Convincing people that it's okay to admit when there's something that you don't know.

Damien Rice and Ryan Adams are my two favorite singer-songwriters.
Music is my therapy. When I feel the most lost, confused, or upset is when I start writing.
That it's okay not to be okay.
Nervous above all. But after a certain point, liberated.
On one hand, we live in a time where it's easier than ever to make and release your own music without having to jump through the industry hoops that used to be the only path to success. On the other, that leaves most of us as very small fish in a very large ocean. It's hard to stand out.
I like it so far. All 27 minutes that I've been using it.
When I have an idea in my mind that I can't quite figure out how to bring out into the song.
By getting out to shows whenever I can.
If I knew, I think my music would be being heard by a larger audience.
There's a 99% chance that whoever you are, you know way more musicians than me.
