Ryan Cabrera, Music and Me
Now that it’s all said and done, I think it’s pretty clear American Idol was the catalyst in bringing music back into my life. As much as we all fussed about my not getting a feature on the show, in the end, it really was the best thing for me.
Being sent home from Idol forced me to slow down and rediscover what I wanted for my life. I was able to take the time to figure out what I truly wanted to do with music and how to make that happen. Turns out I wanted to record an album. Something that would be the culmination of everything – who I am, where I’ve been and where I’m going. And who better to help me with that than Ryan Cabrera?
