Still working on that hot first release.



I am a guitar player and singer/songwriter who has a handful of originals, but mostly play covers of songs from that Singer/Songwriter genre. My style is positive. I don't get political and I don't get depressing. The music can be summed up as "optimistic", I guess.

I have had great opportunities over the years to play in really neat venues. From Small Town Celebrations to Backyard Bonfires, I've played them all. Most notably, I was fortunate enough to provide the music for the James Taylor/Carole King Pre-Show Party in 2011 at the Schottenstein Center, here in Columbus, just before their concert, and then again when James brought his solo act to Columbus in 2014.

I have been playing guitar since I was about 11 years old. My father showed me the G, C, and D7 chord, and I took it from there. I listened to a lot of music growing up, and can remember long car rides as a small kid on vacation in the backseat listening to John Denver, Kenny Rogers, and Loretta Lynn telling vivid stories through music, which I was able to play back in my mind's projector. I remember really liking what I was hearing, and today I am happy that I am able to tell others' stories and my own stories through music.  

I would love to hear from you concerning an event you might have that I could be a good fit for.
