What got you started with playing guitar?
About a year ago my brother wanted to start learning how to play guitar. To help him along in his venture my aunt had loaned him one of her acoustic guitars. When I saw him playing it, I immediately wanted to give it a go. About a week later I bought my first electric and fell in love with playing.
Who are some of your biggest influences?
I’ve been very blessed with the talent to learn the guitar fairly quickly, but I wouldn’t have pursued it with the same gusto if it wasn’t for the wonderful support of my family, specifically my dad who has helped me with everything I needed. Of course, there are many amazing musicians that I look up to like Marty Friedman, Slash, and Jimmy Page to name a few, but my family definitely takes the cake as being my biggest influence.
Have you played at any major events?
Do you consider the Louder than Life Festival a major event? Me too. And with your help, I hope to get there one day!
Do you have any songs? What are they like?
This is a difficult question for me. Yes, I’m working on my own music, however, I don’t think the world is ready for it. All kidding aside, I am working on some original songs and I’m hoping to have them out this coming year. Since I have an eclectic taste in music and style, I can definitely say my songs are not held to one specific genre.
Are there any other instruments that you are interested in?
Besides guitar, the drums have always intrigued me. I’d love to get my own set one day.
What motivates you to play the guitar?
There are so many outstanding guitarists out there, and watching and listening to them creating incredible music is very inspiring and always makes me want to pick up my own guitar and play.
What do you hope to accomplish in the future?
Besides finishing my album, I hope to form a band. I also hope to increase my growth on Instagram and YouTube, as well as collaborate with other very talented musicians and eventually fulfill my dream of becoming a touring musician.
