Stronger Than Before

My first single, “Stronger Than Before” was released on August 8, 2017.  The song has an upbeat, vibrant sound to it, and the lyrics were written to give hope to those who have been knocked down in life.  I wanted to remind them that the light can only get brighter, and they are stronger than before, which is important to remember!

 

 

Better with You

My second single, “Better with you” was released March 19, 2018. This song means a great deal to me; there’s a lot of truth to it, and I’ll likely remember all the feelings and emotions I had while writing the song for the rest of my life.

Tell us your history.

Beginnings

I grew up in Peoria, listening to my dad play drums in various bands.  I always knew that one day I would be up there playing, and I picked up a guitar at age 9.  By the time I turned 16, I had written a song called “Forever in My Dreams” and had fallen in love with songwriting.  I listened to a lot of classic rock as a teenager, and I particularly admired Justin Hayward, singer and lead guitarist of the Moody Blues.  Everyone has a musical hero, and he is mine.  At age 18 I started recording, and released my first single at 19.
