Set List

My sets can range from 1 hour or less, I like to keep it short but soulfully sweet. Although I love doing covers, I do not perform any on my set, I only perform all original material with my live band. I love to open with a nice soulful Acapello rendition to let audiences feel the full power of my vocal range.
