As is the case for so many others, music for me is something that reawakens past memories and feelings. Some of my earliest experiences that I remember through music are the ones I have travelling to the lake with my dad, singing the lyrics to Charlie Major’s debut album "The Other Side". While music continues to record past moments of mine, over the years it has also become a source of inspiration for me. Music gives me the motivation and creativity to paint, something I thoroughly enjoy. Names such as Christina Perri, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fleetwood Mac, Andy Shauf, Theophilus London, Powder Blue and Toby Keith all instantly make me want to push some paint around on a blank canvas. It is music’s ability to influence me not only as an artist, but also as a person, that will maintain my love for it throughout my life.
