I grew up in St. Louis, MO.
One day I woke up and started making music.
I wasn't extraordinarily gifted or talented.
I was curious and optimistic.
I made a lot of really bad songs.
Then I made a few good songs.
Then I met some really great people.
Now I'm here in LA.
Making a living...
Moral of the story - You are not the chosen one. You are the one choosing.
