He debuted the single "Waiting On the World to Change" when he dropped by unannounced at their New York studio on June 14, 2006.

When he was seventeen, he was suddenly stricken with a cardiac arrhythmia that sent him to the hospital for a weekend. The trauma of the incident sparked his songwriting, and he penned his first lyrics the night he got home.

His favorite foods are sushi, kobe beef and other Japanese food, as well as veal.
