One of six children, there was never a dull moment growing up. Although I always had an artistic side, as a teenager, I found my place in the world. I am a musician. I began when drawing and writing poetry became a daily routine of self-expression. One day at school a classmate had approached me as I was writing a poem. He claimed to enjoy reading what I had written. He then asked if I wanted to be the singer in a band that he comprised. I told him I could not sing or play an instrument. I was inspired by that moment. That Christmas my parents had bought me a guitar. I began to instruct myself to play guitar and sing. I wrote many songs.
Over the years, I have been a huge part of the local music community, whether it be a solo act or part of a group. In some bands, I would either play rhythm and lead guitar or sing. Eventually, I was comfortable enough to perform both at the same time. Even though I taught myself to play guitar, I did take singing lessons. I finally settled under the name LUNATyPE. Unfortunately, the contributing musicians in the band rotated constantly. This had left me distraught many times. With the help of my associate, Carl Shank, I overcame once more, and now I am pursuing my dream of becoming a signed artist to the extreme.
I have an open and appreciative opinion of music, especially the classics, due to the exposure of so many artist throughout my childhood. My influences vary from a wide variety of genres of rock music. This has allowed me to venture into diversity in my song composition. Having researched and accepted knowledge from musically inclined acquaintances along the way, I developed a sense of challenge to the process of writing, recording, and performing music. Many aspects considered in order to have an appealing product.
This is only the beginning of my journey. I will not stop doing what makes me who I am, and I hope to share this aspiration with others, whether it be vicariously in my tales or the path I continue to walk.
