Originally from Chicago, I've lived and played music in Nashville, TN, Madrid, Spain, Champaign, IL, and right here in Chicago during this great decade. I've jumped (literally and figuratively) around to play all across the midwest and the south as well, and I'm always trying to take things further in every sense.
I'm a performer - a singer and multi-instrumentalist - who is an accomplished songwriter and arranger with an ear for production.
I set out to make accessible, yet extraordinary music that I love.
My main focus is vocals, yet I am proficient on many instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, bass, piano/keyboard, ukulele, and drums. I am a lead vocalist who nonetheless thrives on writing and performing with a group, incorporating vocal harmonies aplenty, and writing strong arrangements for maximum effect. Primarily involved in making Rock/Pop music, I value musical versatility and open-mindedness above all. For me, this comes when knowing what you love meets willing exploration (and of course having the skills to pull it off).
Looking for the right people to do all of these things with. Get in touch!
