Wholeheartedly committed to making piano the best experience it can be for others
Ever since I was four years old, I’ve been absolutely captivated by the piano, but music has also always meant more to me than just a hobby or impressive talent I’ve obtained. Growing up, music was my escape. All of my compositions are inspired by emotion and I often hear that they’ve helped others get through difficult times.
It just goes to show that music can speak louder than words.
I’ve experienced a lot of pain and despair throughout my life. Growing up, I witnessed my father lose all control over drug abuse. Homeless since I was 24 years old, I’ve seen life taken for granted.
My dad used to always tell me growing up that I should play the piano and sing. He felt the only way I’d ever be heard is if I used my voice, but I knew my compositions spoke louder than words.
Although my music has always been expressed as dark and moody, it all really is rooted in a deep, deep passion. Over the years, I lost my dad to drug and alcohol abuse, my beloved grandmother passed away, and I suffered from two miscarriages.
These are tragic circumstances but it shaped me into who I am and I wholeheartedly believe it shaped my music into what it is. Whatever I’m set out to do in this world, I know it’ll be through the piano.
