My sound is rooted in acoustic folk music, indie rock, and even centuries-old hymn writers, using guitar, banjo, mandolin, and piano to communicate that dynamic. I’ve played many coffee shops, college campus venues, churches, pubs, youth groups, living rooms, and basement house shows, accompanied by my wife and a friend or two on drums or violin. I play my original songs from albums I’ve recorded, including “In the Morning” (2014) and “The Listening Room” (2013). My hope is to keep moving forward in establishing myself as a writer and musician toward one day making a living performing and recording music.
As a young songwriter living in Johnson City, TN, actively pursuing a career in music through performance and recording is challenging and exciting. My songs provide a point of connection between me, the listeners, and the atmosphere it is performed in because these songs are ones that have made sense and challenged me, making performance a way to grow alongside my audience in real time. These songs speak truth that is vital to our ever-growing culture, with a voice that asks questions that everyone has.
