“I think anybody with a passion strong enough will try to work their butts off to get to wherever they believe that they can get to. So, I think, believe it, love it, and work for it and I think you’ll get there 100%.”
“You find family in friends.”
“My favorite theme is finding a family through your friends throughout the entire story, because not everybody’s blessed with the best family, but what you try to do and what you try to find in your friends is all up to you.”
“I grew up in an environment that loved music and not just loved it for stage presence, but loved it for the meaning and the art that it was and I think that’s what kind of drew me towards it.”
“I’m more of an acoustic guitar guy but because Luke is an electric guitar guy, I had to go rent an electric guitar. And so, I started off with a Shawn Mendes song that was pretty soft, and they were like, “Do you have anything that’s a bit more upbeat?” And so, I did the Backstreet Boys song “I Want it That Way.” They were really happy with that.”
“I learned a lot on Julie and the Phantoms. It made me very visible, but at the same time, I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for all the auditions I lost and all the training that I have done in the past.”
“You are strong and you have what it takes to do anything that you want.
“Take all your failures and turn them into lessons. Every no just means you are a step closer to the next yes.”
