I’ve always loved music. I’ve been singing since I could talk and writing songs since I could read. Not that anything I wrote when I was 5 was good or anything.
I got my first guitar when I was 8 years old. I took lessons for about a year. I learned the basic chords and the rest was self taught. A few years latter I stumbled upon one of my biggest influences, Dodie Clark, who inspired me to take up ukulele. I learned how to play in the store using the chord chart on the side of the display. I just had to have one. So I got a ukulele for my birthday. That’s when another one of my big influences, Rock 101, a music camp for kids, gave me some instruction on piano and some on bass. A family friend gave me his old bass and I worked to improve my skill. I did not, however, buy a piano, but I continued to learn the basic chords on it. Meanwhile I joined my school orchestra and took 18 months of violin. A while later Rock 101 gave me a some drum instruction. A drum kit is next up on my wish list. During this time I got some speakers, a couple microphones, and a small mixer which I used to record my first album, Athazagoraphobia. Athazagoraphobia is the fear of being forgotten, and the album is a desperate cry to be remembered for being something great. Which pretty much sums me up. But anyways, that’s me.
