I have been inspired by many artists over the years to include rock, pop, metal, country, christian and more. In this CD you can pick out similarities to all of the above styles. This album is not about sounding like some big name group. I wrote the songs on this freshman CD as an independent artist. I believe that my individuality in my sound is an important part of who I am. I could have easily written and recorded songs that sound like an existing hit. If your tired of the same old music in your CD collection, it's time to purchase something a little different.
