After fiddling with a few other instruments as a child, at age 14 I decided that I wanted to play Pearl Jam and I begged my parents to let me rent an electric guitar at my local music store outside of Boston.
Over the last 20 years, I have worked on my craft. I learned how to sing, how to run a band and how to rock hard at live shows. Cover bands were my thing. I learned how to emulate singers and guitarists so that I could get in front of my friends and not completely embarrass myself. And over the course of 8 years, I went from playing in the smallest of clubs in San Francisco to some of the largest.
But one thing always bothered me: I never had put significant effort towards writing my own music. I never considered myself to be an artist. I viewed myself as a performer of other people's music.
One pandemic later, I found myself with the time to record originals I wrote as a solo artist. I hope that these songs move you - I have poured a lot of blood, sweat and tears into these tracks. Rock on!
