ABOUT

I am a singer/songwriter that wants to put my skills and songs to use by either forming or joining into a band as a lead vocalist. I have been singing all of my life and writing music for just as long. I have written and commissioned instrumentals for a few of my songs and can supply a demo of my latest creation. Singing is a passion to me. I am moved by the nuances and differences in music and instrumental melodies. What I lack in technical knowledge I make up for with an uncanny ability to catch on to things quickly and take charge as well as communicate my ideas clearly.

Influences

I have a great many influences musically. I grew up listening to a lot of Southern/Classic Rock, as well as rap and country. I take inspiration from Journey, to .38 Special to Beyonce. As far as songwriting itself goes, there are a ton of writers that I am blown away by, but to name a few I am influenced by Lin Manuel Miranda, Sara Bareilles, and Ed Sheeran the most.

EQUIPMENT

I have a recording microphone and a pop filter as well as stand to record in, I usually do voice recordings in a closet in my office which I have haphazardly taped soundproofing foam to. I also have a guitar that I bought from a shop that I know very little about other than how to play the specific chords needed for the songs I've written.
