Artistic Statement

As musicians, I feel that it is not only our job to breath life into the music that we make, but to also keep the art that we so dearly love alive. In order to do that we must move and adapt with the times. Therefore it is important to approach music with a fresh new take every time I get my instrument out. This means it is important to always be thoughtful of how I play, and also of how my art can be received in ways that people can continue to appreciate it, while still staying true to how the music was intended to be presented.
