I am a singer/songwriter born and raised in Burbank, California. I come from a family comprised of musicians so you could say that music is in our blood. I feel very blessed to come from that background.
I pursued music as a career for a long time, particularly as an artist, then stopped several years back. As we all know, not finding the success we dream of can take a toll eventually. I came to terms with the fact that "it" might never happen and once I did I realized that I can in fact be quite happy nonetheless (wow!). Music, in some way, will always be a part of my life no matter what, but not being famous (or whatever) does not minimize the talent that I have.
In a way, my dream has shifted. Of course I would never reject someone offering me a recording contract, however, I would be so fulfilled to have the music that I write be recorded and performed by other major artists. Perhaps that is an even crazier path to pursue, who knows, but I know that that's where I'm at right now.
