Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it. That's a really difficult question. I've been doing music most of my life. For as long as I can remember. I would say my family, specifically my parents were the ones who got me into music. From listening, to lessons, to instruments, etc.


Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career? I'd say some of the people I've gotten to meet or run into here in the Nashville area. You can pretty much run into anyone involved in the music industry here. Also recording at Blackbird and Dark Horse studios was an awesome experience.


What has been the high point of your music path? Moving to Nashville from Maryland to be involved more heavily in the industry and just writing music. Also getting to help out with Creation Music Festival in Philly in August 2021 was super fun.


So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?


Generally I don't have an idea in mind. I sit down with my guitar or piano or some new/borrowed piece of gear and mess around and a song comes from it. I write very quickly. So I can normally get together a whole song in about an hour and it's the production process (mixing specifically) that takes the longest. I also find messing up or playing random things on both instruments can help me find something I wouldn't have thought of that sounds really awesome. New sounds (with synthesis) also helps me with my writing process and new ideas.

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?


Exposure. It's often hard to find out the best places to invest in promoting your music. Some get lucky but for the most part it's a trial and error type approach and you just have to invest and see what sticks. A lot don't know where to start and there's a lot of scams out there.


If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?


Dayglow. I feel we both have a complimenting style and he seems like a fun guy to hang with.


What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?


Generally playing through the songs a handful of times before the show and running through transitions and stage presence.


Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!


One that hasn't been released, "Tomorrows Yesterday". I had written the music about 10 years ago but it wasn't till late august 2021 when I sat down with 2 lyricist friends that it came to completeness. It was my first time cowriting in person as I generally work solo but it was a really awesome experience to see it come together after so long.


What's coming up in the future?


Lots of new music in 2022. I'm planning to release a new song every month! Tell us where fans can access your music.
