I grew up in mitten-shaped Michigan, USA. I wasn’t especially interested in music as a kid, and it wasn’t until I was about 12 years old that I began to discover how much I loved making music. My brothers and I took to “jamming” in our tiny upstairs attic on junky electric guitars and a trashy yellow drumset. I could soon play guitar, bass, drums, and piano, and of course I could also sing with my little 12-year-old choirboy voice. My interest quickly shifted from simply playing instruments to recording my own original songs in my makeshift home studio. All was well until I fiddled around with some synthesizers on a program called Garageband, and my world was forever changed. Electronic sounds intrigued me and would become a huge part of my unique sound. In early 2014, I signed with Dröm Records and began planning my biggest and best album yet. Shadowlands is the first album that I released with Dröm, and there is much more music on the way. I want to give all glory to God for what He has done and will do. God gave me life--I make musics for Him.
