Bio

I began playing music when I was just 3 in the form of piano lessons. Kinder Keys it was called, and these early lessons would be what provided the foundation I stand on today. I played in my school bands all the way through high school participating in jazz ensembles and classical ensembles. At this point French Horn was my major love.

One day I discovered I could actually sing. This was all by accident when I auditioned for the school musical and got the lead. This is when I started putting lyrics to music.

I moved to NYC when I was 18 to pursue the arts. I wanted to be involved in everything. I saw theatre, movies, rock shows... I couldn't get enough. But it wasn't until 2006 when I joined my first band.

Since then I have been cultivating relationships with photographers, musicians, and painters which has given me the chance to expand my thinking on music. These people have been my true inspirations.

What I bring to the stage is years of performing practice everywhere from theatre to open mics. I have surrounded myself with professional musicians from all walks who I have arranged to fit my style and give the resulting line-up a deep and polished sound.

As everyone else has been, I am influenced by the likes of Buddy Holly, The Beatles, and Zeplin. My other influences are: Chet Baker, Jeff Buckley, Elvis Costello, The Rat Pack, Dizzy, and the people around me.

I think my music speaks for itself.
