Still working on that hot first release.



My love for music began when I was a child; as night fell and the crickets called out across the yard of my home in Chesapeake, VA, I would tune my radio to the local station and fall asleep to the sound of country’s finest.  While in elementary school, I penned simple poems and even won a contest or two. As the years went by I began turning the poetry into songs.  I’d sing them for my mom on the way to football practice; she would urge me to sing louder, telling me that one day many people would be listening to my music. Who knew her words would become a reality?
My first band, Those Rowdy Boys, consisted entirely of fellow U.S. Navy personnel. It was an honor to play with those guys. I'm truly blessed and thankful to have had the experience.  I even had the pleasure of playing and singing country music for folks in Japan... Tokyo has a wide variety of people who turn out for shows and jam nights; they always appreciate a good show. And they love country music!

 So far, I have had the privilege of opening for Raelynn (The Voice) at San Diego’s Sleep Train Amphitheater and the iconic Deana Carter (Strawberry Wine) with my band Desert Edge at the legendary Coach House.  Together with my producer Mark Charles Hattersley and bandmate Ron Elliott, I wrote a tribute to America's wounded veterans, Fullest Life, which has earned three distinguished awards, including a nomination for the 2016 Hollywood Music and Media Awards and a top 10 in the 2016 John Lennon Songwriting Competition. 

My first EP, Long Road, has just been released worldwide. The group of fantastic musicians who contributed to the project helped me create a record that rocks while honoring the country traditions that got me started in music so many years ago.  I hope you’ll take the time to give it a listen.

I recently moved from sunny San Diego, California to tropical Tampa, Florida, where I am attending Full Sail University on my way to a degree in Music Production.  I have committed myself to professional songwriting, performing, and recording. This country boy is now making music his full time career!  Lord willing, I'll have many more opportunities to share my musical passion with the world.  

I invite you to accompany me as the journey continues!
