Can you speak a bit about this?

我开始玩的时候 路德迪金森 of the Black Keys and North Mississippi Allstars when I was 11, and he has continued to be both a mentor and a friend. I grew up around musicians and artists, 他们中的许多人花时间相信我,并给我传授经验. I have played bass and piano in many live shows, done some studio work and backup vocals, 最近我开始在本地和国内其他地方演出. 

What can people expect to hear at your Young Artist Concert?

I hope anyone who watches my Young Artist Concert Series 离开的时候,我明白了我是谁,无论是在台上还是台下. I have tried to show different sides of myself, with songs I loved as a child and songs I’ve written recently. 这是我的人生和音乐之旅,展示了两者是如何一直交织在一起的. 


Will you be working with any other performers for your concert?

我的合作者和老朋友Maia Jarrett将和我一起玩. She is one of my favorite people to harmonize with, 跟, 就在你身边, and we have a special musical connection. 我的弟弟,斯隆,一个了不起的吉他手和人,也将演奏. 

How has the music program here impacted you?

Cathy Block has changed my life. She is so much more than a teacher. 她是我的良师益友,也是我最好的音乐老师. 凯西知道如何用积极的态度鼓励学生,并在我们没有尽自己的责任时让我们承担责任. 她真的教会了我如何成为乐队的一员,如何带领乐队的音乐家. The entire music department at Solebury is special. Kim Harris has inspired me everyday since I met her, 格雷格·利普斯科姆总是有很好的洞察力和最美丽的组合. I wish I could take every class here 100 times. 有些课程我已经学过很多次了,每次都能学到更多. 这些年来,我感到很幸运,我的音乐不仅被接受,而且被活跃起来. I have been able to bring the community together and feel good, 我会永远感激索伯里为我和我的艺术创造了空间. 

What are your dreams for your future?

我的梦想是生活在这样一个世界里,我可以成为促进音乐和艺术作为变革工具的一部分. 我们的世界是美丽的, but we have so much progress to make, 没有比创造力和毅力更强大的工具了. 我希望我个人的未来是充满音乐和和平的. 我希望更多地了解制作和音乐产业的不同方面,并找出我在其中的位置. While I am grateful for these four years, I am excited for my life after Solebury, 我知道我将在这里学到的所有经验教训用于我的事业和生活.
