I had to have been in middle school, 12 or 13 years old, and my mom was driving my siblings and me to school as she blared the CD throughout the car. We listened to Coldplay’s CDs every day in the car, and with every song, I fell in love with their music.
I had never really considered myself to be an artist. Throughout childhood, I was pretty good at drawing and could color inside the lines, but never did I think I would be where I am today as an artist.
For years, it sat mostly quiet in our den. I ran past it on my way outside to play football, baseball, basketball or soccer.
