Bio: It’s not the typical story, I wasn’t singing at age two, performing at age 4, or playing guitar at age six. In fact, I’ve kept quiet the majority of my life; I was listening. I’ve always been fascinated with music, especially lyrics. A great song is a great escape. However, it wasn’t until I graduated college, and couldn’t find a job, that I began playing guitar seriously. And while I have never taken any lessons in anything music related, I’ve been able to figure out the basics on my own. It was during that year of unemployment that I began writing more songs than I could keep track of. However, that was not my first or only year of song writing. That is one thing I did begin very young. I can clearly remember writing lyrics against the brick wall of my elementary school during recess. And in junior high, instead of passing notes, I was passing lyrics between friends. Something just clicked, however, when the guitar came around, and songs started pouring out. Of course with a guitar and lyrics, singing gets added into the picture. And while I love to sing, and I love to play, by far my favourite aspect of music is song writing. I have no idea what the future holds but I just thank God for giving me an opportunity to even try.
