What does winning the 2018 Texas Dream Night Talent Search mean to you?
Winning the Texas dream night means a lot. It gives you a lot more confidence for sure. To know that some of the music industry’s best like who you are and like what you do. That itself speaks volumes, besides the advice they give you to help you along in your music career.
What inspired you to become a musician?
Honestly, I’m more of an artist than a musician. Yes, I’m a trained percussionist, but I love the art of creating something that no one has heard.
What surprises have you encountered in pursuing your music career?
Fans! I love the fans! They’re the first ones to let you know when you get off the stage, that what you did lifted their spirits, made them laugh or cry. I like hearing everyone’s story and being an artist allows you to meet people from every walk of life. It’s a big plus for sure.
What has been your biggest challenge to date?
Honestly, picking out which cajón I want to take with me everywhere I go. Haha.
What’s your process for writing lyrics and where do you get the inspiration for your songs?
Living life. Life gives me music to write. Either my story, a friend’s story or just what’s going on in the world. There’s a song in everything and everyone. You just have to be open to it.
Tell us about your most memorable performances.
Texas Dream Night by far. Being on that stage where many artists have performed. That was the highlight of it all. The Texan Theater has had artists like Toni Tony Tone to Big bad voodoo daddy’s and I got to sing on that stage. I feel blessed.
Have you shared the stage with anyone we would know?
I sang with the band from Small World in San Antonio, which was pretty awesome!
