ABOUT

Seasoned lyricist, "gifted and unique" vocalist with a big dose of fearlessness in my soul. I've spent 18 years working with, for and around musicians of all levels as a stage, lighting and ground producer. Every show was like a punch in face, I thought "I'm blowing it, I have the this in the fu*king bag with the right line up of musicians. After singing in several different bands and projects I found myself battling everyone else's sound instead of coming together as a new group of friends and musicians working on new material. One thing I have to say, give me a cohesive piece of music and I'll write meaningful words to it that will either make your tough ass cry, or, hit you like a truck.
