January 19, 2017
...
One of my favorite things is traveling to new and exciting places.  I travel quite a bit when I am touring, and I take a vacation or two with my sister every year.  I’ve traveled all over North America and Europe and can’t wait to go see more of the world.  I’ve been to Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, France, Alaska, Cancun, Portugal, Hawaii, Italy, Greece, Mexico, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Saint Maarten, the ...

I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to make it in this industry as an independent musician and how to be ...

A Life of Music and Travel
