"I left a good-paying pharmaceutical sales job to do what I love. I found that the prescription for success in the music business is a good bit of passion, even more perseverance, and a big ol' dose of good timing. I believe a great song is one that makes you feel something real... if it makes you laugh, cry, or remember, it's worth singing, because if you feel it, your audience will too."
