"What appeals the most is the honesty of these songs"
-THE DAILY VAULT (National Music Blog)
I'm an independent artist, which means I can make art I find meaningful, not music I'm forced to create to fit label standards.
I'm fed up with the mainstream music industry. It's pompous, shallow and paints unrealistic portraits of how we should feel, think and act. My music is for people who aren't always the party hopping trend hunters. We're a little weird and that's ok.
It's actually me and not a management team communicating with you. You can actually contact me directly to give me your thoughts on a song or just say hi at any time!
Music is the path God has made for me while I'm here on earth. When I was not even 2 years old, my dad would play his old records on the stereo while I would dance along in my bathrobe to his Bruce Springsteen, Beatles and Bob Dylan Albums. (Not all his favorite artists start with "B", by the way that's just a strange coincidence).
Since then I've picked up a guitar, gotten a degree in music and I've been following in his footsteps as a musician for many years, traveling the U.S. playing my music to people like just like you, whether it's stadiums of 10,000 or candle-lit rooms of 10. I've shared time with Paul Simon and John Mayer and I've been featured on some of biggest music blogs in the country, such as "PASTE", ""Kings of A&R", "Alternative Addiction" and "The Daily Vault".
Enter you. You stumbled across this page on the internet because I intentionally wanted to get this page in front of you. I might have met you at a show, or you saw my page or I targeted you in an online ad. Something about you caused me to want to show you this. This is because you have musical tastes like mine and you aren't the type who looks at things at face value. You like to look a little deeper. You like acoustic guitar, good lyrics and well-told stories. Me too! That why invited you and not everyone else to see this page.
I think the last few decades of mainstream music have been...well, to put it light; disappointing. I'm pretty sure you've noticed this too. It's like nobody cares about lyrics anymore and songs are really watered down and trite. Of course it's not all songs, but it's too many not to notice.
I could play the game and go on American Idol or fight my way into the doors of a major label to try and have a huge career and play for sold-out stadiums for millions of people, be on billboards and top 40's charts. But honestly, if I did that, I'd sign away my rights and creative control. I would have no direct contact with the people I care about; the fans (a.k.a. YOU). I'd be separated from you with a wall of managers, PR people and there'd be very little real connection. I don't want that. I want to hear your thoughts and ideas and stories, that's WHY I DO THIS.
So, I want to invite you to come along on a five day journey with me, to share my songs, thoughts and life with you in a way that would never happen if I went the traditional route. So get a good coffee (if you like coffee...I certainly do..trust me, you'll find out sooner or later) and a nice set of headphones and let's start our own story.
"Equal parts brilliant and stratospheric"
