I started music around 2020, and developed a habit of wanting to play for people live in person. I was originally inspired by my late step-grandfather, Jerry Harris, to approach music as a hobby and if it's in God's hands, then I will be able to chase that hobby as a career. I hope y'all enjoy/enjoyed my performance.
