SHORT BIO

Lyrics that resonate, melodies that endure and a voice that begs for your attention. With a knack for memorable melodies and insightful lyrics, this songster is quickly making a name for himself as a respected songwriter where ever he plays.

"At some point I recognized that we experience everything for a reason: empathy. To me, songwriting is an opportunity for collective empathy. A well written song compels the listener, the audience, to identify himself with what the singer is singing about. It might be a poignant paean to lost love or a hook driven melody made to make you move. Either way all that is required is for one listener to connect and the moment is seized. These are the moments that I live for as a songwriter. I'm not just writing for myself, nor for anybody else, but for that which lies in between."
