I feel like a rare breed these days . It's not often that I see the same passion or interest in music that I am a part of . My love for music began when I was around 5 or 6 and has continued to grow and evolve to encompass so many different styles or genres over the years that there are few I have met that can enjoy music in whatever form it presents itself . If I have to put it simply in one sentence , "To me ... music doesn't have to be all of these things that people try to make it , music doesn't care , it's just music ." If I had to name my single favorite hero in music , it would be my dad . He's taught me almost everything I know and more importantly he taught me how to listen and feel . I owe him for that . As far as my favorite style ... there's lots of them but if it has a little pain and struggle , a little soul and revel , and a hell of a vision to it .. it's my favorite !
