Singer / Songwriter
I was born in the North, but came to the South 6 months after I was born. The South continues to be a landscape that inspires the kind of music I write. For no other place has such imperfections, beauty, and strangeness. At age 16, I was in my first band. It was there that I began my affection for old timey country music. After a series of groups throughout school, I went to FSU where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing. Later in life, I taught myself to play guitar so that I could combine my love for writing, singing, and creating music. My original music came out to be Americana. It's a mixture of old country, folk, and blues. Like the South, it's been a comfortable place to hang my hat.
