Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by my website! I'm currently living in beautiful Denver, Colorado and performing all through the state, with frequent tours through my previous homes in Gulf Coast Florida and New England. Please sign up for my email list to get free mp3s, updates on my gig schedule, and advance notice of all my new releases! Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to check out some videos, download some of my music from iTunes, or stream my music on Spotify.
Excited to announce the release of a new single "Gone" written by good friend and Siesta Key musician Matt Gerhardt and recorded with John Patti at Studio G in Tampa, FL. For an advance preview, sign up for my email list.
Thanks to Fabian from Boyce Avenue and filmmaker Joey Durango we have a fun new cover mashup (Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" mixed with Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon). I'm looping, playing upright bass and guitar, singing and beatboxing, James Dabone (of Ari and the Alibis) on Trombone and John Patti (International Steel Pan Artist and regular feature on Sirius/XM Radio) on Steel Pan and Percussion. The guys from Boyce Avenue / Live at the Shop team are crazy talented, and super generous to produce cool videos like this. Check it out, and subscribe to their channel!
