I’ve always struggled with this. I’m a songwriter, a singer, a guitar player, a friend, a lover, a dreamer; human. I write what I feel. I write to tell the truth.
I grew up in a suburb outside of Cleveland. A grey town most of the year, but beautiful when the sun hits it. Something that has inevitably made it’s way into my music. Keeping my emotions at bay has always been a challenge for me. In my youth I had struggled with it a great deal. I was a hockey player as a kid and would channel it through that, until I had knowingly heard Nirvana for the first time. That changed everything for me.
I had found the outlet I was looking for and ran with it. Playing in various grunge and rock bands over the years eventually lead me to where I am now, musically.
