I am 30 years old, I have been playing in bands and writing music since I was 15. I played in some bands that got some attention regionally in different areas but nothing that ever really turned into anything. I love playing music, its all I ever wanted to do. I turned 24 got married and by 25 I was preparing for my oldest daughter. I wasn't done making music but I was done trying to "make it". I got a real job, focused on that and raising my kid, I kept writing songs and recording but that was it, I didn't join any more bands.
