In one sentence, why do you play music? I create art because of the powerful healing impact it can create for those in need.
If you could share one thing with other musicians, it would be to: Put some effort toward building a community online around your art. Everyone wants to feel a part of something and your music can be the connective tissue for a massive community.
Favorite guilty pleasure song: Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe"
