    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.

    Awesome Gig

    This past weekend, the band I'm in played a gig at the bar where I got my semi-professional start. Let me explain...this bar is known for having just older country music, and the regular patrons prefer it that way. But as I said, it's where I got my start, so it was pretty...

    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...

    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...
