Biography

I have always wanted to be a writer, and wrote my first novel at 19 inspired by “On The Road”. And I feel that writing music pushes your writing into another 3rd dimension, and allows you to fully express what you want to say. I started playing acoustic guitar in 2005 and before I even learned to play chords was trying to dress my poetry in the sounds that would complete the feeling. I find that all my writing is lead by my deep feelings, and lately have strayed away from writing lyrics before music because I find that the song loses authenticity of emotion when an inexperienced musician like myself tries to express what I’m feeling with a guitar. Now I enjoy creating a rhythm guitar or drumbeat that feels right, and then frantically working from there in one sitting to complete the song while I’m feeling the same way. I usually don’t write lyrics for my songs because of the speed I try to finish what I’m working on, so I use what I would call “subconscious songwriting” where I just sing whatever comes to mind as I find the melody and let it go from there. And the thing I like the best about creating music this way is that it captures something that I might never feel again and reveals things that had never come to mind because of just singing without thinking, but just feeling.
