Sterling Witt grew up on a farm in rural Missouri. At 15 Sterling was writing songs and playing guitar. “From the start I was obsessed with songwriting. I have this overwhelming urge to explore my abilities. Pushing myself to the edge is what it’s all about. I’m always looking for my breaking point to see how far I can go. Finding out where that is and figuring out how to go further. For me that’s what being an artist is. Exploring the unknown.”
