Columbus, Ohio, USA

These press quotes say it better than I could:

"Country Music from 2030"

"literary muscle in twitter-sized bursts"

"this collection of terse and humorous, albeit sincere, kissoffs has a bitter country heart and recalls a less erudite John Darnielle or Robbie Fulks on a worse than usual day."


I began writing and recording GBV-length country songs in January of 2011. On Valentine's Day 2011 my 5 song/8 minute debut titled "Your Love is Bummin' Me Out" was released on Cassette/Digitally by Indiecater Records of Dublin Ireland and met with warm praise by blogs such as Large Hearted Boy,, Donewaiting and My Old Kentucky Blog among others. Around this time I began touring regionally supporting larger acts around the midwest and East Coast, sharing the stage with Southeast Engine, The Black Swans, David Dondero, Joe Pug, Strand of Oaks, Frontier Ruckus and Will Johnson's Centro-matic. In April of 2011 I was approached by Afternoon Records/Warner Music Group to release the EP as a limited to 500 7" and later agreed to an option for 1 LP. I embarked on a 29 date solo tour throughout the midwest and east coast in support of the release including 8 dates with label mates The Poison Control Center the following July. In the fall I began writing for my upcoming full-length and playing regional dates. In winter I played 26 dates throughout the midwest, east coast and south will be touring the east coast again this April. I recently recorded a session for which will post in early March.
