I began doing Johnny Cash professionally, about four years ago in (2009),
I had been inspired by his music all of my life, but never really tried to do it correctly.
I was at an event doing your basic Karaoke stuff I think it was 2009,
when I performed a song of his and the people just started going crazy over it.
It was at that very moment that I became hooked on the Man in Black.
I began studying every story about the man from his roots as a child,
to his humble beginnings with Sun Records. Standing in front of mirrors for hours,
studying his stance,to his facials, to his trademark machine gun way of holding
Pretty soon I no longer saw myself standing in front me.
So I decided to put out an album of his material.
People started coming up to me and telling me how much I reminded them of him.
I've got to say, It just doesn't get any better than that.
When prepairing to perform the character of Johnny Cash, I try to set my mentality
to what he might have been feeling as he sang those songs in the studio and on stage.
The thing I try to recreate most about him is the conviction and timber in his voice.
It's like you believed every word he sang was speaking to your heart and it helps
me mentally put myself in those shoes.
in his own words
