  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

Music moves the soul

Q: When and why did you first begin playing guitar?

A: About five years ago because my buddies asked me to play in their band.

Q: Why do you think people should come to your show?

A: Because they’ll get to hear some good music. It is a chance to relax a little bit, and it is fun.

Q: Why do you play at Easy Street Cafe in Bowling Green so often?

A: Because Easy Street has a good atmosphere and crowd. I think more people should go to Easy Street Cafe.

Q: How would you describe your style of music?

A: I like to call it “Optimistic Emo.” It is borderline of Howie Day and John Mayer.

Q: Do any of your previous shows stand out in your mind?

A: Yes, when I played Mahall’s in Lakewood, Ohio, for the Cleveland Music Festival. It was awesome, everyone was having fun especially me. It was a big turnaround for me musically.

Q: Do you prefer playing solo?

A: I don’t prefer it, but I do enjoy it. If anyone is interested in playing with me, give me a call.

Q: What are your plans for the future?

A: Make it through Bowling Green (secondary education major). I don’t really have a plan, whatever happens, happens.

Q: Have you always played acoustic guitar?

A: I started off with the electric. I decided to go to acoustic because so much of the music I listened to was acoustic. It is so much clearer.

Q: Where do you draw your lyrics from when writing a song?

A: My life. They are all about me, the people around me, and my experiences.

Q: What is your favorite song that you wrote?

A: I really like to play “Tomorrow Will Never Come.” I love the chorus, and it is really fun to play. It is about taking in every second you have with that special someone.
