ABOUT

I am a student at the East Carolina School of Music studying Music Composition and Music Education.
I am an operatic, dramatic baritone that can sing in the operatic style, as well as contemporary feeling. I love the mix of hard, heavy music with dramatic, powerful vocals. I grew up in the Baptist church, so that very much influences my vocal technique; a soulful, gospel type singing. I also have a very large range (C2-G4 if I've warmed up properly)

I have been playing piano professionally for over 7 years and am very accomplished being trained both classically and as a gospel pianist.
I have also been studying flute classically for over 10 years.

I have been in a host of bands ranging the spectrum but my dream band is a progressive metal band like Nightwish or Epica with myself on vocals and writing music.
