Being a Musician is what I really want to do with my life. I always love playing music because each time I did, I always got a high that can’t be compared to anything else. In 2008, I started Charter School, and it was the most miserable experience of my life, i sat in my room all day because I had no car and my only responsibility was to go class once a month. During that free time, since i didn’t have much friends, I focused my attention on playing guitar and writing music that matters and will touch people, especially people that were depressed like I was. During that time, I spent most of the time depressed, and thought I didn’t belong in this word. Unfortunately, there are people that take their lifes, but I want people to think that there is a bright side and you can get out of depression.. When I listen to the radio, I always hear musicians singing about love, there was hardly anyone singing about hope for people with depression. When I write music, I want people to listen and go “wow, if he can get out of depression, I can to”. I’ve playing around local music stores, such as FYE in Carlsbad, and have house parties where I have a mini stage and I start playing with my friends watching me. I don’t necessarily care if Im famous, but I just want people to think that there is a light at the end of the depression and my music reflects because I went through that.
