Music to me is my way of expressing how and what I feel. My way of relating to others through music. It's what I eat, sleep and dream about. I love the idea of writing a song from scratch which others cam relate to. The feeling you get from a live performance is like no other. It's a high i never want to come down from.
My dreams are to tour worldwide, 150-200 paid shows per year, with sponsorship, merchandising, making a great living doing what I love to do, music.
I would start with an even playing field for everyone regardless of race or where you're from.

It's my way of expressing my self. To write about things that people go or are going through in real life really excites me.
That you can accomplish anything you truly want to, Dream big, don't let others dictate your life for you.
The immediate interaction is a feeling that you hope never ends. I love being on the stage, making people forget about there issues if only for an hour or two.
Understanding that it's a business, networking together, rehearsing, putting together a real show, now winging it like a hired gun.
Today is my first day, but the tools so far are incredible. I'm still figuring it out, but so far I like.
The labels people try to put on all musicians like all we do is drugs, I've never don any drugs. Also, the cut throat side of the business.
Yes I do, I love going to concerts, seeing others perform, supporting them, learning what to do and what not to do, networking helping when I can.
Can't be lazy, persistance, determination, think out side the box, knowing who your audience is so you can market the correctly. Networking and supporting others, learning skills like facebook ads, instagrams ads, youtube asd etc. Creating a mailing list with a monthly newsletter.
