Pre Order Campaign

Like you, I love music. My earliest memories revolve around it. It began with listening to my dad’s records on headphones, while I was still in diapers. Then daydreaming during class in high school about guitar parts. I even look back fondly at the nauseous stage fright feeling I would get every time I was on stage.

Music was always an escape, like a drug without any real negative side effects. As a listener, it takes me to another place and time. As a performer it gives me a voice and allows me to connect with people.

So the career paths I've chosen have always been about human connection. That's why I started out as a social worker. I wanted to feel real purpose and connection to the people I was working with everyday.

I feel the same exact way about music, so when I started making enough to support myself with music, I felt like it was my time to quit my dayjob and go “all in”

Here I am 12 years since that decision, it hasn’t been easy, but I don’t regret it. In fact I’m even more grateful now that I can support my family while while pursuing a dream. I get to do something that still excites me as much as it did when I first picked up the guitar at age 14.

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned while working for myself is that I am way more productive when I am held accountable by other people. If i’m hired to do a job, I put everything I have into it. When I’m left to my own devices, like most people, I procrastinate

Knowing this is about myself, It be easy to let another year slip by... or 3 go by without releasing any new music. So in August of this year, I put myself into a do or die situation and went to Nashville and get to work.

I was able to find an awesome producer that shared the same vision for my songs. And I got to work with some amazing songwriters and musicians.

This is first group of songs that I feel really has a lyrical thread. These are songs about my life now...things I wasn’t really thinking about in my 20s, things I was too scared to say in my 30s and now, things that I can finally articulate.

Speaking of now...

I need your help to finish this record and release it out into the world. If I can meet my presale goal, I can start delivering this EP as early as Thanksgiving (which is only about 6 weeks away)

Whether this is your first time supporting me or you’ve been a long time fan, I want you to know that you are the reason I can still do what I love. So thank you for keeping me going!
