I started playing music when I was 14 years old. I was so passionate from the time I started playing. This was my sole outlet to battle my struggle with severe depression in my teenage years. I probably never would have made it through those years without music. I now know just how important and healthy music can be for children and adults.
I released an eight song album in 2004 and that was a fun experience to have my first professional recording. My band Seven Mile Sun led me to meeting my wife Jen. She had owned Medea Records and had released over 10 albums. I eventually signed with the label which allowed me to release music and get songs placed in TV and film. That also briefly led me to writing instrumentals for music placements. I was lucky enough to land a fairly big music placement that helped pay for a down payment on a new home and and improvements we wanted to make. After I had a child, my music career outside the house became non-existent. Now I play with my family which is fun sharing my love of music with my 6 year old.
I plan on continuing to write and record music but it will be at a much slower pace and when I can fit it in. Until then, I enjoy playing My Little Pony and Disney songs for my daughter.
Here are some voice-overs I recorded and edited for the stories of No, Seriously…blog.
