Music has been a part of my life since I was very young. I started playing guitar at 16 and have been writing and recording my own songs since I was 18. My passion is writing and singing. I love most all genres of music, but favor country music. My favorite artist is Johnny Cash. I grew up with siblings that were much older than myself, so one of the things that bonded my father, brother, and I was Johnny Cash music. My favorite songwriters include Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Shel Silverstein, Billy Joe Shaver, and of course, Johnny. As a songwriter, I have begun to branch out into different genres...including bluegrass,rock, blues, and r & b. More songs are on the way!
