ABOUT

I was born in Texas, but I got to Florida as quickly as I could! Both of my parents have played in the same folk band since before I was born 37 years ago. They started me early on keyboard, then violin, trumpet, mandolin, and choir. Problem was, I couldn't stay interested long enough to master anything. I never practiced and I dropped out of the Texas Boys Choir after a year. My parents were pretty bummed out.

But I never stopped singing. In the car, in the yard, at work, at karaoke, a couple of choir sessions, and now recently at a couple of practices. I've recorded a few covers over instrumental tracks, really rough, with the help of my friend who is a drummer and DEFINITELY not an engineer. Well, we didn't strike gold on day one, and I don't like to impose on his time, so I've gathered what I need to do it myself.

I've picked up the guitar on and off over the years. Given time, I could be a decent rhythm, but I would prefer to focus on vocals.

Ultimately I want to leave my job and make music for a living. I know that's going to take some work. To get there I am down to start with live shows, mess around in the studio, or whatever.
