My voice has a rich folk tone that will bring tears to your eyes as it breaks your heart and mends it together again before you realize what hit you. I sing over the soft melodies of my guitar in an almost lullaby type fashion.

Biography

I grew up in a family of musicians. All of us writers and singers the same. I have been playing guitar for seven years and I haven't stopped singing since I learned to talk. I've spent much of my music career in my church; leading the worship team. Praise music has a strong hold on my heart, and I love to watch my listeners grow as I lead them in worship. While still loving my praise music, I write my songs more to a brokenhearted listener. All of my songs are based on personal experiences. Unlike many bands, my sole purpose is not to become the most famous performer. I hope more that my music is an encouragement to those who have felt the sting of life. I am here to let them know they are not alone.

Set List

Typically, my set lists last about an hour to an hour and a half. I formed my sets based specially on the venue. I perform many of my own songs, but I also enjoy the traditional Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash covers. I sometimes even throw in some Radiohead and Jeff Buckley material. Some of my songs include: Rufus Wainwright's "Hallelujah," Patsy's "You Belong To Me," Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues," Radiohead's "Creep," and many of my own originals. I also play several new country songs. Some of which include: Sugarland's "Baby Girl" and "Fly Away," Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take The Wheel," and Taylor Swift's "Tim Mcgraw."
