I met Big C at a truck stop on the California Arizona border, where he was selling his CDs by performing and playing his music in the parking lot. It was 11:30 at night and over 100 degrees.
His story is one of talent and drive, a descent into darkness and redemption; and his music and tenacity to succeed are the ingredients that helped him survive.
You’ll love his honesty and his vibe, and I play some of his music too. You have to check him out and I think you’ll find a new favorite.
Quote to watch for:
“It seemed like everything was going downhill and...I wanted to change my life, so I used...my music to pull me out of it. That’s why I tell people that my music has literally saved my life.”
