I live in the the southwest part of Arizona, but am originally from Philadelphia. I grew up in a very musical family. It's a huge part of my life. It's my therapy, my take-me-away-to-another-place state of mind. Can make me cry, laugh, dream, dance, give me goose bumps. Music is an amazing release for me. It can paint you a picture with the words, with instruments...like beautiful art on a canvas, it inspires.
