Studying vocal, music theory, piano and opera at a young age. How did winning the Nationwide Ram Trucks Battle of the Bands competition launch your professional career?
It helped me reach a new audience — a more commercial and brand orientated audience. It gave me an identity where people could connect me and my music to a major brand and corporation. I was able to do so many amazing new things because of that. My opportunities skyrocketed. I played the Chrysler Headquarters, The Texas State Fair, The Austin Rodeo, The NFR Finals in Las Vegas 3 years in row and more. Had a blast working with those folks!
