I am a full time touring performer and songwriter. I've released three full length records and one EP since 2008. My 2014 self-titled album was debuted on USA Today and videos for the songs New York City and Soon I Was Sleeping were premiered on Yahoo Music and The Wall Street Journal. I've had the honor of participating in and winning the Kerrville New Folk, Telluride Troubadour and Rocky Mountain Folks Fest contests where I've had the opportunity to meet and often collaborate with some of my favorite songwriters in the world. I've taught songwriting in intimate settings and classrooms, and have been an instructor at the Planet Bluegrass Song School for the past three years.
I grew up in Knoxville, TN listening to the radio and my mom's collection of folk, singer/songwriter and classic country music. I cried when her Dan Fogelberg tape broke until she told me that there were many Dan Fogelberg tapes in the world. I love sneakers and peanut butter. I can't remember jokes. I have a hypoallergenic dog named Dede. I think that really good songs have the power to take us to a place where can celebrate our common truths and feel less isolated and alone.
