I've been fortunate enough to play music professionally since 1991. As a kid who dreamed of only playing a few shows outside of my home town for food and gas money that's pretty big deal. I try my best to reconnect with the mind set of that 1991 version of myself. Music has given me so much enjoyment and honestly a spiritual connection to people and God. Just thankful for the gift of music. The escape. The bridge it has been to so many wonderful experiences. The journey isn't over and if your trying to make a life in the music game keep at it. Success doesn't have to mean selling records, big crowds or money. Being a successful musician is when you truly feel a connection to your craft, your band mates and see others connect to what your playing. That's the goal.
