I make my living performing solo at coffee houses, sports bars and fine dining restaurants across Eastern Iowa. My largest solo performance has been estimated at over 7,500 people. I am completely independent, no manager, no label, no agent. I am doing and have done this all on my own.
I've released four completely independent cds of original material. I've gotten some radio play and had some of my songs selected for play in coffee houses nation wide.
I am not to the point yet that I can sit down and force myself to write, the songs come when I am open to hear them. Most are autobiographical and very personal, sometimes painfully so.
