Biography

Early on, my Mom showed me three chords on the guitar. By the age of 14, I taught myself to play the guitar and by the age of 16, I was writing songs. I grew up listening to Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Hank Williams, Jr. & Waylon Jennings. All these artists seem to dig deep and write about triumphs in their lives and weren't afraid to write about the turmoil either.

Over the years I have played in numerous bars and at festivals in and around South Carolina. At The Bowery in Myrtle Beach, SC, I was a special guest for one week. I performed with the Bud Moffet Band to open for Tracy Lawrence at Rascals, Augusta, GA. At Tumbleweeds in Anderson, SC, I performed with David Allan Coe. I was asked to perform my signature song, "The Saluda County Tractor Pull" at the pull. During the pull, Kentucky Filmmakers were following the American Puller Association Circuit, completing a documentary in the making.

I continuously write songs based on the life experiences of myself, family and friends. What makes my band unique? The band consists of myself and my drummer, Cyndi. Although we are a two person band, we perform! We have yet to play a bar or event and not pack the house. In October, 2006, I returned home from a tour in Iraq and it feels really good to get back to performing. I also received a new perspective while I was gone. Life is what you make it and don't waste a minute! I love to entertain and share my life through music. It's in my blood!

Set List

Our sets are usaually (2) sets 80 to 90 minutes long with (2) 30 minute breaks and we normally play 4 hours a show. After the second break, we play a short set to round out the show. A typical set list is a mixture of my music, covers of old/new Country, Southern Rock and some Alternative Rock. A song list of a typical set:
