A: I just want to make timeless music and have that take me wherever it wants.

A:When I started playing the piano and singing to girls lol.
Q: What made the guitar your instrument of choice?
A:The piano is actually my first instrument of choice, but the guitar is so on the go and has been part of my vision of me on stage since I was about 8-9. I really feel the guitar in my body when I get into it. I want I people to feel as close to what I feel as they can when they watch me play so I’ve been making it part of my identity as an artist.
