Being born in Northern Virginia at the crossroads between the North and South greatly influenced the multi-genre sounds that define my music. As a singer-songwriter-guitar player, I never wanted to be pigeonholed into one specific genre. I believe in always being a student of music and I am constantly experimenting with different styles and sounds. My influences range from Arctic Monkeys, to John Coltrane to Jackson C. Frank. I am inspired by artists who paint visual stories with their lyrics. Songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Isaac Brock, Paul Simon, and Alex Turner are some of my favorites. At the heart of my sound is soulfulness, catchy melodies, and a penchant for wordplay. I started writing and recording songs when I was 17 and am currently working on my debut LP entitled "DayDreamin’." Click on the link to my Instagram to stay updated on shows and new recordings. Also keep an eye out for some new singles which will be dropping. Cheers!
