20 years ago I had a vision. I knew that I wanted to be a musician and play guitar. I wasn’t any good at first but passion for it and support from those close to me kept my dream alive.
Every Wednesday, in my teens, my mom would drive me to open mic to perform the songs I had written. I never expected those Wednesday’s to lead me to a Wednesday night at Jazz at Lincoln Center. But they did. Dreams do come true. I am so grateful to accept this award. Thank you to the ASCAP foundation for this huge honor. Thank you to my family and friends and the dedicated fans that listen to the music. Thank you to my sober family. I wouldn’t be here without you. The opiate epidemic has taken so many of our friends this last decade and I cannot accept this award without bringing awareness to the epidemic. Let this award be a symbol that we can be drug and alcohol free musicians and live out our dreams. I’m proud to be a sober songwriter!
