What are your goals as a musician/performer/group?
I want to perform, and to write, and to study, and to critique music. I want to take music and use it to tell stories. Music has taught me about patience, collaboration, self-motivation and perseverance. Music has made me a better person, and I want to use it to make the world a better place.
