So about 3 weeks ago, I started learning some songs with Christian Carroll, a phenomenal violinist. Our first show together was at the Whisky a GOGO in Los Angeles. What makes our story fascinating is the way we came about. Christian’s father, the late Steve Carroll had a dying wish that his son Christian would get out from just playing Tommy Condon’s downtown and that he would do something with his music career. That’s where I come in. Old man Steve also had mentioned to me how he wanted his son Christian to get on the professional music career level like me. 3 years after Steve’s passing, here we are making amazing music together. We only had 2 weeks to prepare for the whisky show and we made people’s heads spin! Nobody could believe we had only been playing together for a few weeks. Not only did I find my match on a professional level but I gained a new best friend in the process. I’m so grateful!
