Born into a hippie missionary group in Hawaii. Music was always a big part of our lives. But I only ever wrote songs as a way of getting through emotional trouble. Playing for an audience was never a big goal of mine. In fact I was so scared of getting up in front of people, it almost killed me a few times! The only reason I do get up there is because I believe making music is the best thing I can do with my life! It’s been a long hard fight coming to that conclusion. But nothing else I have ever done seemed truly meaningful to anyone else. I believe each of us has a purpose, something we can give back to the world. Every song I have, feels like a gift from God to me. My purpose on stage is to share those gifts. Though it kills me a little to do this. Sometimes I feel the light come through when I sing.
