I started playing music at a very young age. Held a guitar at 7 or 8 years old and never looked back. Started writing songs (or at least tried to), since I was good enough to do chord changes (basically just used the same chords as my favourite songs, and changed the melody and lyrics). Spent most of my life playing in bands where I happily stood at the back as part of the ensemble so to speak.

I was terrified of sharing my art and being the centre of attention, because I never felt I was good enough and I've been insecure since day 1. It took a pandemic for me to realise I should probably share my art because I was bored and the world may be ending soon. Two years since I started sharing my original songs on social media, I am only now beginning to accept that I may not be as shit as I always thought I was. 

But sometimes I take a step back and ask my self: Why do I even do all of this? I've always longed for validation. Now that I've experienced some form of it, what next? I go through all the comments and messages sent to me, and I realise it's not just about me anymore.

It's a lot more than just validation. It's about being able to inspire people with my actions, words and music. It's about showing everyone that through hard work and determination, you can improve at your craft and reach your goals. That you can hold a day job and raise a family while still pursuing your passion. That age is just a number, and it 's never too late to do something you've always wanted. That you can do things you never thought you were capable of, if you face your fears and allow yourself to be uncomfortable every now and then. Wherever this path leads, I will forever be grateful that I have inspired some people along the way.
