Over the years, I’ve had quite a few people write bios about me and my music. I figure this time, I’ll just let you hear it straight from me.
I started writing songs as a kid on the family piano and probably learned most of what I know about melody and harmony from singing in church.
I lived in the midwest growing up, and wound up in Southern California for ten years during my young adulthood, where I formed the Alt-Country Band COME AND GO with my brother, Shane, in the late 90’s.
We started off playing the local dive bars, grew a following, and soon became a staple of the Hollywood club scene, frequenting venues such as the Whisky, the Troubadour, and the El Rey. After signing with Purify Records we recorded and released our first proper album ‘SHINEBOX’ in 2005, which set us off touring the country, and landing songs in TV and Film here and there.
I relocated to Austin, TX in 2007, built a home studio, and recorded my first solo album, "Faith and Proof" soon afterwards. I am currently in the process of recording Come and Go's followup album to Shinebox.
