My passion for music started at a young age.
  1. I saw Matchbox 20 for my birthday in seventh grade with my mom and aunt. I couldn't see much because the guy in front of me was standing the whole time but he was also a veteran fresh home from Iraq. I wasn't in a place to complain.
  2. Then I saw Leon Redbone, most notably known as the snowman in Elf. My brother and mother fell asleep at the table but I stayed awake to support my father. Family politics.
