He is often quoted with these words “The opportunity to play alongside others for a ‘greater’ purpose has been a driving force for my passion. I am in a pursuit for God though music, and invite others, on a regular basis to join me on that journey. It is at those moments when I feel like I’m doing what God created me to do.”
