ABOUT

I'm an independent musician, producer, songwriter, and vocalist. I work full time in music balancing my time between live and studio performance, arranging, production (pre, post, mixing, mastering, etc.), and worship leading on Sundays. I also tour on and off throughout the year with various artists. While I typically don't join bands (except for short-term projects), I'm always down to explore new music/musicians, make meaningful connections, and get involved in events and recordings.

I seem to ALWAYS be on the lookout for good vocalists to sing background. I look forward to meeting and working with some local talent!

Influences

I'm very eclectic. I found it difficult to choose only 4 genres! As a producer and session musician, I do my best to stay up to speed with most styles of music. Growing up as a pianist, my main influence was David Foster (my teacher was his understudy) along with Elton John, Bruce Hornsby, and Billy Joel. I learned a lot from the rock piano stylings from bands like Journey and Kansas. When I began playing guitar and singing, my biggest influence became Phil Wickham, and I'd say that's the closest example of my personal music style now. My most current playlists include Ellie Goulding, Mosaic MSC, Hillsong Young & Free, MUSE, The Killers, Avicii (RIP), Lecrae, NF, David Guetta, Passenger, Of Monsters and Men, Sia, Lily Allen, Elevation, Bethel Music, Demi Lovato, TobyMac, and for KING & COUNTRY.
