I was born in Western North Carolina on a farm in a small town called Sugar Hill. Growing up we raised beef cattle, fescue and orchard grass. I would always be mending fences, going to cattle sales or working outdoors with my grandfather. My mom and dad worked alot as I was a child. Most of my childhood was spent with my grandparents. I attended McDowell County Schools and graduated from McDowell High School in 2003. During both middle school and high school I played basketball, soccer, track.
Throughout school, I was the "musical jock". My life was consumed with sports, music and family. My life hasn't really changed that much from when I was a child. I still love sports, music and family. My favorite love though is music. I truly enjoy helping others enhance their gifts as well as giving those that think they have no talent or can't sing a lick; a voice.
When I'm not consumed with music or school, I spend a lot of time with my family and trying to keep up with the most trendy things in music. If you have any good beats or hits you would like me to check out just let me know. I love all kinds of music. Here is a video from The Sing-off! BTW- I love Accapella Music.
