HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR FREE TIME? DO YOU HAVE A HOBBY?
"I like to spend time with my family and friends, playing with my band and watching movies. A big part of my time is spent playing my guitar and now the banjo and writing and recording music."
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT SO FAR?
"My good friend Mary died tragically in a car accident at the age of 20. As a tribute to her, I wrote, “Mary’s Song”. It was played at her funeral, and because so many people lover her, they loved the song. It won a National Songwriting Competition Award later that year. It remains my most cherished accomplishment today."
HOW DID YOU GET INTERESTED IN MUSIC IN THE FIRST PLACE?
"From the time I was two years old I couldn’t get enough of it. I grew up listening to my father’s classic rock from the 70′s, sometimes with my ear pressed up against his high wattage Kenwood speakers. My family was amazed when I did this as a baby. I just fell in love with music before I could talk. Once my parents bought me my first guitar at age 12, I wrote my first song and I was hooked."
