song writing style is to find honesty in my words and to convey them in a way that
can resonate in others. So many of us have struggled, loved, lost, fought and even
though some of these times have been hard or sad, I try to find a way to always
make my songs inspiring or uplifting in some way. Showing that in life, things may be
though but WE are in control of our lives and WE can turn things around.
