When someone asks my why I am in a band, I could respond a thousand different ways. Though.. I only ever answer the same way each time and it’s simple. I absolutely love music and everything about it.
Playing music is the greatest feeling I have ever felt and it cannot be described. Whether it is playing for 20 people or 200, being on stage is a feeling that gives me butterflies and make me want to throw up. I love it though and wouldn’t trade for anything.
I started making music in fifth grade playing the alto saxophone for the concert band. Music has been around me all my life and I honestly do not know what I would do without it. There is this internal drive that pulls me in and makes sure that I devote every ounce of time towards bettering myself through music.
It’s when people say things like “being in a band is like burning money” I will never understand. Being in a band isn’t going to make you millions of dollars or make you famous worldwide. It is about sharing your creativity and love for something in which words will never describe. I honestly have to say I would rather die than not have music be a part of my life.
Fail to Decay has been an ever changing life process that I would never give up on. It has grown me into a more mature person as well as seeing the world for what it truly has to offer. It has made me sacrifice time, friendships, money and so much more, but I don’t regret this. There is nothing in this world that will ever mean more to me than making music.
With all this being said I purpose one question. What do you have a burning passion and love for in life? Whatever that may be, never let it go, and never let someone get in the way for what you truly care for.
