Call Myself Stubborn Hope I'm still hopeful. It sounds almost impossible to make it in the music industry, but it's not It requires building the right team. preparation communication these things. Things have implemented within the studio. Aspects studios are expensive. You know unless you're doing in your basement, which which I'm not doing it with a group of highly skilled individuals, and so I kind of take command of the situation, I make sure that everybody knows they're part. Make sure that we communicate effectively. I went to school for Audio Engineering and music production. So that was a beautiful of. Opportunity to learn the language. Recording artists and the engineer are usually speaking two different languages so being able to have effective communication in the studio and get your point across when the you know, the Mike is is recording, or you're doing another take and having that communication is really really beautiful, and that's something that I developed the Marine Corps that's.

Don't know how to authoritative I'm not saying that that's always the case for the Camby. I I also went to school when I was twenty eight. Most of the kids were twenty, one, twenty, two there still getting their. Feet underneath them in the continent up speed authoritative with love and respect always at building that team of people who know how to listen to know how to communicate effectively. people have definitely noticed and they've appreciated I think it surprised a lot of people I look a lot younger than I have and nobody really thinks. RECON SCOUT SNIPER BECAUSE I don't really care myself that way, but yeah, it's been. It's been highly effective to have. All of these skill sets that I learned in nineteen year old ban and bring that into the into the music industry. Absolutely all right cool so What are some of? The. Breakthrough moments you've had since since she started with be since you came to Nashville or when you finally when he moved to. New York like some of this break, free moments like. Oh, we we! We landed a big IG or Ended a big record contract, or those kinds of things short short, so I would say some I small victories. I would get worse in in new. York I was This goes back to maybe the the tenacity of marine I would just walk door to door in Manhattan and and go businesses in bars like. Do you guys have music if you do? How do I get books? If you don't why not, and can I can I bring something in bringing the whole? PA SYSTEM SET UP. Bring in a bunch of people that WANNA drink beers. And spend some money and so. With my ability to do that wound up. Booking gigs regularly throughout Manhattan which is a really busy competitive marketplace. That led up to started I started performing in a Hyatt's in square, which is just pure chaos and they were doing this was did a bunch of soft openings for them when they finally WanNa do their grand opening.
