The Song: Hey Bro
Hey bro is a rockin country song that celebrates the bond between brothers from another mother, as they say. This song means more to me now then it did originally, because my cousin was almost killed in a terrible accident and he barely survived. When I saw his reaction to this song, it really hit me hard on how important it is to be there for each other and have each other’s backs through thick and thin. This song and the lyric video on YouTube celebrate this bond, whether it’s between friends, or soldiers, or 1st responders, or whatever it may be.
Band Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Band Genre: Country
After leaving a career in engineering to follow my passions, I ultimately decided to pursue music professionally to honor my father’s memory who passed away in 2016. He loved my singing and encouraged me to continue to pursue it. I dedicated my debut album Legacy to him. Music was a huge part of my healing process and has now become a new purpose for me in my life.
