At the age of 15, I started writing songs in my room stemming from heartbreak and hormones. Posting originals and quick covers on YouTube of artists such as The Maine, Hunter Hayes & Ed Sheeran.
Come 2014, I moved out of the house and resided in my hometown of Bradenton, FL. to utilize the recording opportunities via the Del Couch Music Education Foundation. All in the meanwhile, building a small following via Vine (R.I.P.).
In the next few years, things got real.
I quit my job in 2015 to fully dedicate my time to creating music. During this time, some unfortunate events occurred & left me in a ‘homeless’ situation. Living on friends couches and spending each day in the studio working with Raven Chapman to create the ‘Life - EP’ released in 2015 which charted top 10 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts.
After that release, I had a bit of a revelation. Music was how I escaped from all the rough patches in my life; what if I could help give that same type of escape to other people?
I wrote ‘breathe.’ in October of 2016 about my dealings with suicide, depression & the overall negative thoughts I had. Hoping to spark hope in not only myself, but others who may be dealing with things similar to what I went through.
From then on out, the goal is one thing. Create an escape for others.
Whether the songs are fun, sad, or confused; making each show & track about being someone else’s escape is the ultimate goal.
Released the ‘Alive - EP’ in the summer of 2017 that has accumulated roughly 500k+ plays and counting and have been steadily releasing singles in January, February & April of 2018. All with one goal in mind, to be/create an escape.
As of October 2018, my song 'Milestone' ft. Joey Kidney is about to break 1,000,000 streams on Spotify.
The best is yet to come,
