I also tour regularly around the area and surrounding cities.How did you know you wanted to be a musician?When I was little I would listen to alot of music in my mom’s car and I always liked to sing. I grew up in a very musical family as well and have always been surrounded by it. When I learned the guitar I started writing music. I wrote alot of poetry so I would put my poems to music.What do you remember about your first live performance?I would play in church alot when I was in middle school, but my first live performance where I played original music was at an open mic in Baltimore and a few of my friends were with me. They had to push me up to the front to play my songs because I was so nervous. I just remember feeling so much better after my set was over, but I was also glad I did it because every show got easier and easier.
