I am a singer/songwriter/storyteller. I am originally from St Louis, Missouri and I have been living in Dallas, Texas for the last 7 years. I play the piano, cello and dulcimer. I’ve been writing poetry and short stories since I was a kid. Writing is my way of getting all the junk out of my head. My younger brother and I had a band in St Louis years ago called Jetpack. When I moved to Dallas I didn’t know any musicians so I decided to set up a small studio in my home and learn how to use loops, record and produce. In 2018, I started releasing songs on SoundCloud and then decided to find a distributor. A few months later i released my album on Spotify and other streaming platforms. Music is my therapy. The right song at the right time can shift my entire focus and I love the power that it has.
