Music removes the illusion that we are somewhat too different to find commonalities.
In my work, I seek to inspire hope. I seek to inspire change. I seek to inspire the best out of my listeners. I seek to engineer a journey of imaginative proportions; a colorful fantasy of my listener’s choosing. What inspires me most of all is music’s penetrative ability TO inspire. As artists, we use the gift of music to confirm what our emotions tell us about life, our experiences, and the world around us. Music not only brings to life the best and worst of our experiences, but amazingly, inspires us to think higher, reach further, & dream bigger, leading us to incredible advancements that change the face of mankind. It is with that fact that my main goal as an artist is not merely to entertain, not simply to soothe the soul, but ultimately, beyond all else, to inspire.
