Original singer songwriter and entertainer, Texas country/Red dirt/Americana.
I'm currently in the final stages of writing my first full length album, a cohesive group of songs that I hope will finally represent the sound and feel I've been looking for. I've written a lot of good songs over the years, in different mindsets, with varying styles and feel, but I somehow couldn't find a way tie them all together. I realized I my thinking about it was all wrong. I decided to stop trying to write good songs, and write a GREAT album.
In the meantime I'm trying to do some solo acoustic shows, keep my chops up and get my name out around the Texas music scene, and specifically now around the DFW area, as I gear up to get this album into the studio this fall, and bring the full band together to hit the ground running in early 2014. Aside from my original music, I still know a TON of covers, so I can play to pretty much any crowd, and I love to entertain and get people engaged and involved.
