Goodbye 2014, Come 2015! Favorite Movies and Albums for 2014

Whew! What a ride this year was!

If I look back, this was probably the best year out of the last 10 in my life, a lot of music projects starting to create shape, lots still to be done but still a lot of excitement and awesome things ahead, a full month tour with LoNero and some of my idols Tony Macalpine and Aquiles Priester, played our first show with Eden’s Curse at Rock N’ Skull 2014 in Pekin, IL and recorded some songs for The Element, Sigma Project among some other things!

I already see a lot of great things coming in 2015, some big changes , challenges but that’s what life is all about, you just have to make sure you follow your heart and do it the best way you can!

To start 2015 in the right foot, I’ll be at NAMM and I am very much looking forward to it!

Anyways, I would like to personally thank EVERYONE for the support, all the new faces that I met this year and I hope to see each and every one of you again soon!

Happy Holidays to all of you, enjoy your family and friends because that is what it matters the most! :-)
