1Music was around me from morning till night. From the time I was two years old I would climb on the stool and bang on the keys of our family piano. But there was one single defining moment that ran through me like a bolt of electricity when I was eight years old: that was the time I heard Don't Be Cruel' blasting through my sister's AM radio. The beat and the rhythm of that song branded me forever and was everything that motivated and inspired me to become what I became.
