I was born and raised
on a small farm in
Penrose, North Carolina. I am the son of David and Debbie Siniard. My parents raised me to have faith in God, love my family and cherish my friendships. I try to incorporate those values into my music the best I can. My sister is my number one fan… and I’m hers.
Growing up in such a small town has its pros and cons, but I love it. Unlike many of my childhood friends, I chose to stay. I don’t want to “get out.” Besides, my music needs this place and this place needs my music. I started playing guitar later in life after a career ending injury kept me off the basketball court my senior year in college. I needed something to focus on and to
relieve my stress. I chose music. The very first song I learned to play on the guitar was “Long-Haired Country Boy” by Charlie Daniels, a song I still cover at shows today. The very first song I wrote was called “Hand Me Down.” A few weeks later I wrote, “Don’t Talk Crazy,” which is on my acoustic album, "Back in the Woods".
My first show was in a small Mexican Restaurant in Brevard, North Carolina. Downtown Brevard is only fifteen minutes from my parent’s farm. I played for chips and salsa. My favorite songs to play during shows are my originals. I want people to know who I am through my songs. I want to connect with listeners and fans through my music. Besides, music is the most powerful form of communication in the world. Having a guitar in my hand makes it easier to say what I really want to say and to express how I feel.
My best friend is seen walking with me in the picture above. His name is Harvey. He’s a rescued dog and means the world to me. And when I say “means the world to me,” I mean it. He hears every song I write before anyone else. This
page wouldn’t be complete without giving a shout out to him.
I hope to continue writing and playing music for the rest of my life. I thank God for the opportunity to do what I have done thus far in my career. I’m pretty much an open book so feel free to contact me with any questions. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter for show updates, etc. My newest album, "Runs in the Family", is now available on iTunes.
