Why is music important?
Life defines challenges and that’s the beauty of it when you have a rhythm, a melody, a sound in your ear – you feel unstoppable.
Music could best describe itself as a drug of healing, a drug of freedom, and better tasting than a beer on a sunny day or night. A freedom to be what you want to be and the urge to strive for success in everything; music just gives you that power and control to define what life means to you.
My biggest challenge and opportunity so far is seeing my craft enter a world of incredible things which can be challenging, beautiful, sometimes useful, tactile, extraordinary, and to understand, enjoy and care about that which has gone into the making. At the end of the day I grow not only as a musician but as a person. The beauty of it all is music!
This is why music matters to me.
