Personal Quote:

I enjoy music wherever it's coming from. I don't care if it's somebody else's song. Most of the time you'll find that I'll put my own stamp on it. But I started writing more because, you know, it's easy to regurgitate what somebody else is doing, but it's exciting to be able to come up with your own. See more »
