ABOUT

I am a singer, songwriter, and guitarist in Lakewood and recently relocated here with my family in 2019. Unfortunately we moved just before all live music shut down, and I haven't had much of a chance to get into the scene. I miss gigging and would be open to joining a band, not necessarily just starting a new project with my own songs.

I have played guitar since childhood and gigged since high school. I am looking for other musicians to continue learning from and collaborating in composition and songwriting. I have experience playing country, southern rock, R&B, and am recently getting into Jazz standards. I can at least hang with just about anything, but the above is my preferred styles - anything that swings. I hope to establish relationships and play with other versatile musicians.
