Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceOne of my most memorable next-level moments was when I had the opportunity to share the stage with Charlie Daniels in Nashville. I was only 18 years old and by far the least experienced musician in the room. I had to get it together and take my playing to the next level.
What Drives Your Creativity?Great music and talented people drive my creativity. It's always inspiring to hear other musicians craft the perfect part to a song and sit right in the pocket. I strive to be a learner first, master second, and a student always. I think its important to surround yourself with like-minded people who challenge you, help you grow, and inspire you to maximize your potential.
