"I see music in my life in so many different aspects, whether it be playing guitar or writing a song, or making music for myself to help myself grow and learn as a musician," he says. "I really try to absorb everyone I meet in the music world because they have something to teach me. We're still very young and new to this, and there's still so much to learn and so many new things you can experience. I want to grow as much as I can."
