I'm looking to connect with serious musicians who are as driven as I am; happy, fun personality types who know that to get anywhere takes work. I'm looking for musicians who would want to play out with me and fill out that full sound, for the shows that are more than just me and my guitar.
I am endorsed by radio station My Country 96.1, and am the house band for the pre-show when national acts come through town at the amphitheater. The last gig I played out (pre-pandemic) was opening for Michael Ray and Lanco. In years past I've opened for Chris Stapleton, Old Dominion, Chris Janson, Brett Eldredge, and many others.
I am a member of the ASCAP country writers workshop class of 2020. From there I was chosen for a cowrite with Bonnie Baker (Hunter Hayes, Reba McIntyre, Rascal Flatts).
My songs have earned both "One to Watch" and "Recommend for publisher luncheon" accolades from NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International.
I have performed at The Bluebird Cafe, The Commodore, and Belcourt Taps in Nashville, TN. I have cowriters based in Nashville as well as NY.
I have released two singles thus far under my artist name - prior to that I ran a band (Chantilly Whiskey) where we played covers and originals. As that band, we won Next Country Act for Long Island in 2016, and most notably shared the stage with Lindsay Ell for a benefit for medically fragile children.
Prior to that, I also won a singing competition to sing the National Anthem for CT station Country 92.5 at Monster Jam.

- Acoustic Guitar:
I have pro grade PA equipment with a 16 channel mixing board, sennheiser e935 mic, sennheiser in ear monitors, 6 string gibson j35, 6 string and a 12 string acoustic electric takamine, an electric telecaster I rarely use, and some low quality stuff (two old keyboards) that are just fun to mess around with. I also record at home with Studio One Artist, a Rode NT1 and AT2020 and AKAI midi board.
