    Recovery

    This past saturday, out of all of the great experiences that I've had through out my musical career, marks the pinacle of it, and this was just a private party. False Hope, the band I play and sing in, put on a great...no...magnificent show! Not sure if I mentioned this before...

    Recording Is a Haroing Experience

    Picture this, if you will. You are the singer in a band, you ate also the primary writer who gives creative license on most of the arrangements, which most of the time are exactly what you had heard in your head when you wrote it. Now practice the songs for weeks and maybe even...

    Nothing lets you meet more people

    and touch more lives than MUSIC, especially when you play in a band. I love seeing all the people that love my music and music in general who also think the way I do or hold the same beliefs as me. But what I love the most is seeing people who are so different come together for...

    Theres nothing better

    than playing in front of a crowd of people. To see people enjoying themselves, getting into the show is amazing. There's nothing like it.
