Set List

Set list usually includes a combination of new songs, songs from my most recent EP, and a cover. Thirty minute set, I like to keep it short and sweet (but I have enough material to perform at least one hour). Cover repetoire includes Otis Redding's, "Sitting on the dock of the bay," Carole King's, "Will you still love me tomorrow," and Roberta Flack's version of "Killing me softly".
