I sing and play guitar both solo and with a full band in and around Lower Broadway. I play a decent number of gigs at hotels and restaurants, so I'm able to maintain a very eclectic setlist that ranges from jazz to rock to country. I also play lead guitar and sing bgvs as a sideman with a separate cover band on Broadway. Both of these gigs focus mainly on cover tunes, with the occasional original thrown in by request.
I'm originally from Upstate New York, which is where I first began my studies in music at about the age of 15. I moved to Nashville in 2012 with a degree in jazz guitar performance, arranging, and composition. I played lead guitar as a sideman for many years with a ton of different independent artists in Nashville. Throughout this time I was also able to tour extensively with said groups throughout the south, the midwest, and the northeast. I was fortunate enough to record on a few albums with said artists as well. In 2019 I transitioned fully to playing cover gigs at hotels, restaurants, and bars. As businesses started to reopen with capacity restrictions in late summer of 2020, I ended up playing a lot more solo acoustic shows. This allowed me to really develop my voice, as well as polish up other aspects of my performance in that environment.
