Who I am musically I hope will just keep changing and changing.
I definitely have a firm, fixed idea of what compromise is for me.
I always knew I wanted to be a musician.
Cause I enjoy both, I enjoy recording and playing live, but yeah, the rush of playing live is really something.
But I needed to prove to everyone that I was a serious musician.
And as I got older and played more, people began to forget about my age and took the music more seriously.
You know, being able to, in my mind, have a song that you know doesn't really have any loose ends or you know, extra fat in it, so to speak.
Yeah, but Jesus is the most important thing to me and I want to be bold about it.
With the style of music that I do, I don't think it's at the top of their agenda to push me into doing any compromising material.
I didn't just want to put something out that I wasn't satisfied with.
I don't want to sound arrogant or anything, but I just always knew that my career would be playing music.
I feel so blessed, and God has been so good to me.

I'm glad I've learned what I've learned when I learned it.
I wanted to have something that I was proud of and that I knew people would enjoy.
I think you have to know exactly what you want. Whether you want to be a guitar player or a musician, you have to be really focused on it if you really want to do it.
I'm glad I didn't know certain things earlier, because then it wouldn't be any fun.
I have way too many songs that have music but don't have lyrics.
It seemed at first that everybody was more concerned with my age.
When you get just that right audience and just that right sound on stage and you can just sit back and kinda just let it happen and it's not really any work. I love those moments. Nothing can beat that for me.
Well, people who are blues purist types are usually the most vocal and the ones that pop up on the websites.
I think I'm more influenced, just in general, not by blues artists, but more by stuff from Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder is probably my biggest musical influence of all. And Donny Hathaway.
When I began my career, I was constantly referred to as the kid who could play the blues.
