ABOUT

Hi, I’m a singer, songwriter, & acoustic guitarist looking for a female vocalist and writing partner to compose/record originals and eventually play low-key gigs at coffee shops, restaurants, and small bars. I play rock, acoustic rock, classic rock, folk, pop, country, Americana, and anything that sounds great on the acoustic guitar. I also play harmonica and write songs with harmonica accompaniment.

To see if we are a fit, I'd love to meet and jam here in South Austin I have a decent studio rehearsal space in my house. Come hang out, collaborate, write, record, and make great music. I am currently writing songs. I have a ton of ideas. I just need a like-minded partner for vocal accompaniment and creative inspiration.

Please check me out on YouTube and listen to my original tracks on SoundCloud. Let me know if you want to chat or meet in person.

Text me! :-) I'm in South Austin.
