Bio

I never really expected to call myself a musician. In fact, having picked up the guitar for the first time in the late spring of 2004 and the piano a year later, it doesn't seem accurate to describe myself in any terms that relate to music at all. Nevertheless, I have always loved to write, and I grew up singing whenever I thought no one was listening. Eventually these two passions came together when I made the decision to focus on developing as a singer/songwriter.

Like any other artist, my personal musical influences have played a significant part in my writing over the past couple years. Most of the music I listned to while growing up would be considered "oldies" - such as Elvis, The Temptations, The Beatles, etc. Once I began playing my own music, however, I focused on more contemporary singer/songwriters. Thus, Damien Rice, James Blunt, and even Bright Eyes have all had an impact on my writing.

Both of these factors, my relative inexperience and my specific musical influences, have come together to create a sound which I now call my own. My music is simple, I would never claim otherwise - but it is rooted in emotion and honesty, two characteristcs essential for any artist.
