My Musical Journey
From as early as I can remember, I’ve always been playing music.
I started taking piano lessons until I could play the trumpet in my school band. I participated in the jazz band, marching band, and pit orchestra throughout elementary and middle school. While playing in the jazz band, I caught the bug to pick up the guitar I found in our attic and started teaching myself.
Around 13, I started taking guitar and drum lessons and quickly formed a band with my friends called The Bugs. Soon after, I took an interest in recording our songs, and I went on to complete a recording studio apprenticeship at Crystal Clear Studio in Philadelphia.
Through my teens and early twenties, I continued playing in a band called Jocelin’s Folly with my friends while also playing at my church every Sunday morning. When the band ended I recorded and released an EP entitled “Ready To Fall” under my own name.
I have been writing songs since I was about 14 and it has always been a deeply personal experience for expressing myself and how I see the world. As I’ve grown as an artist, I have attempted to be honest both with myself and what I see happening around me.
