A note from Payne: Music is something I sort of fell into in the last five years. I found myself being overwhelmed and inspired by different people and situations, and feeling the need to tell those stories through song. Since then, it’s been all about moving forward, taking the next step, and enjoying what music has to offer. Getting lost in lyrics and melodies is now one of my favorite past times, but performing with friends takes things to a whole new level. I’m blown away by the talent surrounding me and the community I find myself in.
