I am an experienced guitarist, bassist, and singer song-writer. I've worked within the music industry for the last seven years and have gotten the opportunity to share the stage with many great artists.
Before moving to Los Angeles, I was based out of Nashville, TN where I cut my teeth with an original rock group, Blackwater James. We experienced regional success and opened for acts such as Bret Michaels, Queensryche, Stryper, Saving Abel, and SINAI (Nick Perri from Silverside and Shinedown). Shortly after graduating college, I toured with Platinum selling Country artist, Chase Rice. Sharing bills with seasoned artists such as Joe Nichols, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, and Love & Theft.
Upon moving to LA, I co-started a rock band, Mount Holly, in which I play bass and sing BGVs. We just recorded our debut album and it is set to be released this summer. I also developed an online guitar platform, Guitar Riff Daily, in which I share playing techniques as well as produce gear review videos. My live and studio experience have given me a broad musical vocabulary in which I can apply in a variety of musical settings and genres.
Throughout my musical career, I have earned endorsements from RS Custom Guitars, D'Addario, Pedaltrain, and Planet Waves. I have also shared the stage with Vince Gill, Brent Mason, Dan Huff, Billy Ward, Billy Thomas, and many more.
In addition to recording and performing with bands, I also write and perform as a solo acoustic artist. Marrying my love for melodic guitar lines and hearth-aching lyrics, my music tells a story, a story that I believe others can connect to. In addition to writing my own music, I also have a wide catalog of covers that I am able to perform for events.
