My ultimate dream would be to lead a touring, hard rock, Christian band as head songwriter, the pianist, and the guitarist. Although I have been encouraged to find a more practical dream, I feel my dream isn’t as impossible as supposed, especially since I have a few reachable goals to get there.
First of all, I would need to finish college and get my composition degree. Not just as a “fallback plan”, but also to become superb at my craft. I am also planning to get a certificate in Arts Entrepreneurship, and the marketing skills learned there could help me greatly with the business side of booking gigs and self promotion.
I have already written and recorded an album of full material. I just need to keep pursuing connections with fellow musicians over the next few years at Arizona State in order to form a serious band who would be willing to perform live the songs I have already recorded.
The songs I want to share with the world are songs that depict specific situations like divorce, sexual abuse, stress in college, ect. They do so mainly but not exclusively in a storytelling manner, being as specific as possible so to provide an answer to the difficult questions and situations that life sometimes presents. I only hope that I can someday share music that sympathizes with hardship while exposing the reality of it, and doing so with an overtone of hope and redemption through Jesus Christ.
