I've always wanted to entertain through music. I was born in Nashville and raised by musical parents, Michael Bonagura and Kathie Baillie who were members of the country music group, Baillie & The Boys. I was inspired at an early age touring with my parents. At age two, i can remember singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in front of 20,000 fans.
I'm a very positive, down-to-earth, fun-loving person. My friends will tell you I laugh a lot. I am honest in all respects. Songwriting, producing, singing and as a person. In fact, I have a hard time keeping secrets. My first song illustrates how I view life. It was in England where I was attending the Paul McCartney School of Performing Arts that I wrote "I Make My Own Sunshine" one night when it was freezing cold and raining.
In spite of growing up in a country music environment, I've always been inspired by pop music. That's my love. That's what I write, produce, engineer and sing. I bring an an upbeat style to song. Right from the heart. My debut album "Love Hard" includes songs written during some particularly very happy times when I was totally in love. My lyrics reflect that and you will hear that in my voice.
