Another State of Mind
I was born and raised in New Hampshire and still live there today. I started taking piano lessons at age 5. I soon realized I had an ear for music. I also started playing other instruments, guitar, bass, and drums. By the time I was 13, I was writing my own songs. I began recording on a 4 track. I thought it was great that I could record each instrument separately on a different track and then put it all together in the end. I loved recording so much that I soon bought a 12 track digital recorder. By the time I was 15, I already had songs that I wrote performed and recorded. I now record on a Mac computer program called garage band. I played in several Rock Bands in High School. And soon after graduation, I decided to go to The New England Institute of Arts and Communications, in Boston, Mass, for recording engineering. I soon realized I didn't want to record other peoples music, I wanted the world to hear my music. Since then, I've released two albums. The first being "Barricades" in 2003 and the second "Harmony" in 2005. Last year I was placed on the official Grammy Ballot in 7 different categories for two songs on my second album Harmony. My new album 'Another State of Mind' has just been released and is a huge step from my other two. The songs are a lot stronger and the meanings to the songs really came alive. I love writing songs about everyday life. I always loved the feeling of listening to the right song at the right moment and feeling like the song is about you. That's what I want to do with my music. I am currently writing songs and playing gigs as much as possible. My main goal is to write songs for TV and movie sountracks. I would also love to write songs for other artists in the future. I think my music is enjoyable for all ages and many can relate to the songs. I've enjoyed playing music my whole life. I feel like every time I pick up a guitar or sit at a piano, something great is just waiting to be discovered.
