"without a lightwitch [ep]" - 2006; this is a 4-song EP



I went to college for music - not because one needs to do this to be a good musician, but because it gave me 4 years to do nothing but sing and play and learn as much as I could about the thing that I love most. I wrote classical and electronic music and received a B.A. in Music Theory. I was even in a rock band while in school... But I wanted more.... I was raised on rock ‘n roll.... I needed a guitar. So I spent a few years teaching myself to play guitar and performing interpretations of my favorite music. After a while I finally found my own voice and reached the point where I could play the songs that I had been writing in my head. In 2006, I released a short EP of 4 songs called “without a lightswitch”. In May 2007 I won my first songwriting award for the title track and spent most of the summer and fall practicing and writing more. I’m now working on my first album and recording it in my little home studio. It feels great. You can find me at
