I'm the guy who serenades you with a smile. I find it important to connect to the audience on a personal level. By listening to my music, they become my friends. My sound expresses this friendly sentiment and it's why I play with the Ukelele. It's the voice of joy.

Biography

I'm from a small town in central New Jersey , called Bound Brook. I initially moved to Nashville to attend school for Music Production, but since have begun to realize that school isn't quite for me. Music is my definite calling, and I'm ready to focus all of my attention on reaching and fulfilling my dreams of being a recording artist/songwriter. I hope to be a signed artist one day, possibly get my music in television networks, and/or movies. Most of all, I just hope that one day my music can somehow positively influence the lives of my peers and people all around the world.

My musical influences include Jack Johnson, Colbie Caillat, Jason Mraz, Jason Reeves, Jon McLaughlin.

I've been self-taught on the piano since I was 11 years old. I've also been playing the ukulele for about 3 years now.

I've probably written about 30 full songs by now, I wrote my first song when I was 14. Some of my latest ones are called: 1) Love, Love, Love. 2) American Dream 3) Merry Go Round 4) Change With You 5) Man Of Steel 6) The One For Me 7) Today Is A New Day 8) Forever Falling 9) Out of This World 10) Be There 11) Thank God It's Friday

I've played at Borders Book Store in Princeton, New Jersey - 07/17/10. Ugly Mugs Coffee & Tea, Nashville TN (With Sarah Flanagan)- 07/02/10. 12th & Porter Lounger, Nashville, TN (With Sarah Flanagan) 11/17/10

Discography

I'm currently working on my debut EP, entitled "Today Is A New Day", scheduled to be released to the general public by January of 2011. I'm so excited to finally share my music with everybody on a grander scale. The EP will be available on Itunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, Purevolume, and other sites.
