Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills. 
I got my first guitar and some guitar lessons when I was 11 and played pretty regularly until I was 14. I wrote songs for the song competitions my guitar teacher wold host and even won once. During high school and college I got more interested in other activities and only picked up my guitar once in a while to make sure I could still get through the basic chords. It wasn’t until the end of college and I was rooming with a friend Kellen who had never really stopped playing as I had and seeing how skilled he had become that I picked back up and started pushing again. There had been something missing in my life at this time and it was most certainly my connection to music. I began to hammer out dozens of songs I had missed out on covering over the last few years and even began crafting original music. Kellen and I spent a summer in Paris FR where I would busk on the street and jam with anyone to hone our craft. I eventually formed a band and began being invited to restaurants and pubs to perform.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song. 
This is a classic Country song of longing,  love, and loss. “Meant for Leaving” is meant to tug at the heart strings and get your singing along.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business. 
I’ve been lucky to find inspiration and be able to write and record with some of the most talented people in our local music scene in Phoenix AZ. I’ve been able to get local gigs and and be paid for what I love to do but I haven’t been able to create recordings that have much of a life and legs of their own beyond my pushing them on people.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot. 
When we set out to record this song I wanted to produce it at the highest level so I went to one of the best studios in town and got to work. We were able to lay down the drums with Scott Hessel from the 90’s rock group the Gin Blossoms who really brought and incredible energy to the track. Once I heard his drum take I knew he was the drummer for this song. On bass we had Branden McBride for the band Wyves lay down a smooth bassline that would do that trick and Kellen got started on the guitar work. We were able to make a some good progress after only two sessions but I had already blown my budget for the song at this high dollar studio and the project was on hold. A year later we found another famed local studio to give us a great rate and booked a session to finish the project. We walked out of that session with everything we needed for the track except my vocal take. I had done studio work before but never pushed my voice to give of this much of a “Country” sound. After all the great instrumentation and production on this track it was my voice that was holding it back. I kept performing the song live and practicing and another year later I finally got the vocal take you heard. This song has been the recording journey of my music career so far.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 
You have to start with a story or emotion that will really connect with people and then work to craft it into something the people have never heard before or to get a classic sound that will draw people back again and again.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio. 
Lyrics are so much about the story and connecting with the truth. I’ve found people will always respond to that. Composing and recording in the studio is all about finding the right sound for the situation. First hear it in your head and then bring it to reality.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

I think my happiest day was when I was traveling in Costa Rica in La Fortuna and came across a group of people who were jamming in a park and I jumped in to join them and they were playing along with my songs and many people started to gather to listen and we all had a great time. The highlight of one of the best travel adventures of my life.

The saddest day was when my beautiful cousin Jennifer lost her battle with cancer. She was the kindest soul and was taken too soon. RIP Jen!
