Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I grew up in a rodeo family, country music was always played in our household along with rock ‘n’ roll.
My songwriting is definitely a mix of the two genres that have inspired me throughout the years.
I feel if you write from the heart you can’t go wrong.
Do you have any upcoming shows?
No shows just yet, obviously due to Covid restrictions we all have to be very careful moving forward. When the right time comes I’ll be ready to hit the stage again..
For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Definitely a lot of energy in the show, I like to mix it up. Country & rock ‘n’ roll & hopefully inspire others along the way.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
“Keepin’ On” for sure, there’s something special about that one, a song about not giving up & weathering the storm at any cost.
