“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” — Theodore Roosevelt.
“In 2008 I began to pursue the journey into rapping, singing and songwriting. I always knew I would be a writer of some sort but I never imagined a performer. Sometimes achieving what you want can be extremely frustrating and difficult because of roadblocks you may encounter. I have many highs in my career and lows.

I’ve had close calls with interest from Q-Tip and Jay-Z and let me tell you it’s very disappointing when something like that falls through but I took something positive away from it…that I’m on the right track and artists who I highly admire for their talent and work ethic noticed me. So I chose to look at that situation as positive rather than negative and kept it moving.

I’ve been able to work with and open up for some amazing artists. Though there is so much more I want to achieve and trying to make it as a full time working artist is not easy, especially indie, I would not give it up for anything in the world. I never want to live with the regret that I never tried at all.” - Lyricist/Singer/Songwriter, TK Wonder
