Tell us about your beginnings. How did you know you wanted to be in the industry?
My "Ah-ha" moment was when I went to see Avril Lavigne in Concert in 2003/2004 and she brought up a fan on stage to sing "Complicated" with her. When the fan got off the stage and back into the crowd she stood near me and I could see how the experience had changed her. That's what I wanted to do, and started working towards my goals in music.

Tell us about your style. How would you describe your music?

I like to define my music as "Edgy-Pop". You've got the rockin' guitar solos with the underlying dance beats and infectious melodies to make up an irresistible combination that has a little bit for everyone.

And your latest project? How did it come about and what can we expect to hear?
My latest single "Dear John" was written for my father who passed away. It's a song about wonder if they are watching us from up there, and if they are proud of what I'm doing and who've I've become. It was released on October 19, 2019.
