He’s stoked for what’s in store for ‘Bout Last Night and their fans!

Joining a boyband has been an exciting and transformative experience for me. After working solo for the last few years, collaborating with a team has been incredibly rewarding. It’s refreshing to have other talented musicians to share the workload and bounce ideas off of. All of the guys are great writers, and it’s been a pleasure working with them.

What makes this band stand out is that we’re taking the best parts of a traditional boyband and adding elements of a rock band to create a unique and exciting sound. It’s not just about singing and dancing; some of us also play instruments, which adds another layer of depth to our performances. I can’t wait for our supporters to see and hear what we’ve been working on. 

But, it hasn’t always been roses and sunshine.

As with any collaborative effort, there have been challenges to navigate while being a part of this boyband. One of the most significant challenges is finding a balance between different personalities and creative visions. It’s important to ensure that everyone’s ideas and contributions are heard and valued, but at the same time, we need to work together to create a cohesive and consistent sound. Thankfully, the band gets along very well, and we have a shared goal of making great music and putting on memorable shows. Overall, I’m grateful for this experience and the opportunity to learn and grow alongside my talented bandmates.

Thankfully, he’s got a strong support system to keep him grounded.

As an artist, it can be easy to get caught up in the pressures and distractions of the industry, but I’m fortunate to have a strong support system that helps keep me grounded and focused. First and foremost, my family has always been a source of support and encouragement for me. They’ve been there for me through every step of my musical journey, from when I first started playing guitar at a young age to now. I’m so blessed to have two very supportive parents that make sure I’m on the right track. Their love and guidance help me to stay motivated and focused on my goals.

My fans are another crucial part of my support system. Their encouragement and love keep me motivated and reminds me why I do what I do. Their messages and comments inspire me to continue pushing myself and striving to create the best music possible. For the longest time, I remember when I barely had anybody listening to my songs, and to now have people screaming all the lyrics at shows is crazy to me. I’m truly grateful for the support system that I have in my life. No matter what challenges or distractions may come my way, They help me to stay focused.

Lesson for shy teens: turn your introversion into a strength!

Something that may surprise people about me is that, despite being in the public eye as a musician and performer, I’m actually quite introverted. I tend to be more reserved, and I often need time alone. While I cherish connecting with fans and performing on stage, being in large crowds or constantly surrounded by people can be draining. That’s why it’s crucial for me to take time for myself.

As a child, I was quite shy, and the pandemic only amplified this. For a year and a half, I stayed in my home studio writing and producing music to refine my skills as a singer-songwriter. However, it came at the cost of losing touch with my friends and communication skills. Being introverted can sometimes be seen as a weakness, especially in the entertainment industry where extroverted personalities are often celebrated. But I’ve learned to embrace my introverted nature. I think it’s helped me in my songwriting, and it’s also given me a unique perspective on life and the world around me. I believe it’s vital to stay true to oneself, whether one is an introvert or an extrovert. 

His food kryptonite: PICKLES

One food that I absolutely HATE is pickles. I find pickles extremely nasty, and the mere smell of them can make me feel nauseous. Even as a child, I would remove pickles from any burger that came with them. Also their slimy texture is super unappealing to me, and I can’t seem to get past pickles.
