07.2015 UPDATE: Watch my new commercial HERE featuring my music and me alongside JJ Watt & Kevin Durant. Thank you American Family Insurance for helping me #DreamFearlessly!
Let's just start from the beginning, shall we? I started playing bass at age 16. After a couple years of punk banding it out, I wanted to focus more on composition. My mom taught me the 'A Minor' and 'C' chords at age 18, and I never looked back. I have now written 50+ original compositions to-date.
I have been blessed to play alongside so many amazing musicians, and honored to have shared the stage with some phenomenal acts throughout my musical journey (John Butler Trio, The Sugar Hill Gang, Tribal Seeds, & The Pharcyde to name a few).Thanks again for visiting!
PERSONAL THOUGHT: The last couple years have been a whirlwind! My music was featured in a major commercial with JJ Watt & Kevin Durant. I released my first ever studio recording EP. I had more performances the last 2 years than in all my previous years combined. And I've worked hard to create an online presence! I already know that the future will bring even more opportunity! Stay positive and determined, and you will be amazed at what you can do!
