In 2003 I began "Chasing Down a Dream" by completing a demo album entitled "Me Against Myself” (MAM). MAM allowed me the time to learn how to write songs, record, and begin to build a fan base.
In 2005, Rodney Gene, AKA "Soundpreacher," a producer based out of Austin Texas, received a copy of the album. The two met and set out to complete a full length album that incorporated four completely redone songs off MAM and seven new tracks. The album, entitled "Lessons" produced four 1st place finishes in song contests at www.freemymusic.com, has been forwarded by TAXI 17 times. It has allowed me the opportunity to grow a larger fan base and to perform a few shows to include BB Kings in Hollywood CA!
After completing "Lessons," I immediately began to focus on my next album tentatively titled "Two Sides of Me."
"Radio Song," a ready for radio single, incorporates the thoughts of a frustrated young artist who will do anything to succeed in the music industry, was inspired by the 2005 TAXI road rally when I came away feeling as though there was a formula for great music! There is no formula, but there is heart and passion!
Eugene Foley of Foley entertainment Inc stated "Radio Song is the coolest song I've
received since being with Sonicbids. I love it! We must chat about that song...."
"Life Without a Care" is a no apologies straight up 80s rock song that paints the perfect picture of an era of music that was lost. It has reached #6 on the broadjam classic rock Top 10 charts and is sure to bring a smile on the face of any listener!
Finally, "Someone Else's Life" and "Suddenly" are a return to the more serious side of me as an artist as heard on "Lessons" but with a more modern production feel.
Someone Else's Life is a perfect movie or show placement song that focuses on the time we all waste watching other people pursuing their fantasies and dreams in life.
"Suddenly" is an emotional ballad that was written when my friend was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at the age of 32. It focuses on the feelings and emotions I felt when informed of the news. Another perfect placement song, it is a powerful song sure to affect any listener about how quick the news can come.
I have chosen to focus on my passion in music which is fun, energetic and positive music that incorporates my influences such as Bon Jovi, Blessid Union of Souls, Poison, Def Leppard, and Creed. Thus far, this album is setting up to be a true rock n' roll album.
I am a 29 year old singer/songwriter raised in Woodbridge VA and living near Santa Barbara CA. I have spent almost 10 years on active duty in the United States Air Force, and have sang the National Anthem at several military events.
Currently I am interested in movie placement, exposure and promotion.

"Me Against Myself" and "Lessons" are the two albums released. Both tracks have received internet radio airplay. My goal is for my upcoming album tentatively titled "Two Sides of Me" is to focus more on a more modern sound while staying true to the rock n roll vibe I love as an artist. I am not emo, I am not Nickleback, I am not Creed. I am a true artist that does not wish to be a carbon copy of any one artist and I am succeding!
