I'm currently studying Animation and Studio Arts at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, but music has always been another love of mine.
I started playing piano when I was 6 years old, but had to stop lessons 4 years later when my teacher decided she had too many babies to be teaching haha. After that, I started really concentrating on writing my own material.
Ever since I was 9 I've been in numerous "bands" haha. My first career goal in life was to become a popstar (thank God that's changed). When I was younger it was just me and my best friend writing really bad lyrics about grade school problems. And then in high school I started another band where I was vocals and guitar, but we never got passed a third rehearsal. Right now I'm in a collaboration with my friend who plays the drums wonderfully and we're called The Name Escapes Me. Writing music has just always been something I've done, whether it was good or crap.
I've never had any formal vocal training, so I guess you could say I taught myself through practicing a lot.
Since going to college, I've been performing (whether my own material or not) at any gig I can get just to put myself out there as an artist. It's more for a personal gratification, to be honest. If something comes from it, then that would be pretty sweet. But if I just remain an unknown who performs music, that's totally sweet too.
Hope you like what you hear!!! Feedback is always welcome.
