“I am always grateful and overwhelmed by the appreciation of an audience.

I discovered that there is never a stranger in the audience, ”he said. “By nature, we all need to be creative, to create something. It is our way of contributing to society and the world. The music should make you feel good and I hope that is the reaction of others to my music.

Do you know that feeling when your heart hurts and you feel like you can barely breathe? I wrote it after seeing a photo of myself and a friend from a long time ago and it hurt my heart to see it because we are no longer together as friends.
