How did you get interested in Music?

My mom started me with piano lessons at age 5 and I moved from there to guitar when my uncle handed me his at age 8.

What would you like to be doing five years from now?

Changing the world with my music and letting the world know my sister Gianna was here - and she was amazing!

Please tell us a story aout yourself...

When I was a freshman in high school my 13-year old sister, Gianna, was diagnosed with cancer in the bones in her neck.  As you can imagine, my family was devastated with what she would endure in order to get better.  Gianna was so strong and brave - she never once complained or thought "why me?".  We shared the love of music and she was incredibly supportive. She finally convinced me, after months of bugging me, to put a cover video on YouTube.  It was the turning point in my life.  I knew this was what I was supposed to do. She taught me that you can't let your fears be bigger than your dreams.  Sadly, I lost my beautiful sister in July of 2012.  i will continue to spread her message of hope, love, and "never giving up" - through my music.
