Hi! And thanks for visiting!
I am a Birmingham, AL native. I studied music at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and, while in school, I played in local clubs, bars and venues with dozens of different bands, from top 40 bands to jazz bands and everything in between. If I pride myself on anything, it’s my versatility.
After school, I went and lived a NYC for a year before returning to Birmingham where I went back to playing and teaching. Not long after I returned to Birmingham, I joined Niko Moon‘s band who was on Zac Brown’s Southern Ground record label at the time. That led me to Atlanta where I’ve lived for the past 5 years.
Shortly after the move to Atlanta, Niko Moon’s band broke up and I began freelancing and playing regularly with Kevin Scott, Sam Burchfield, Emerald Empire Band, Artimus, and Beau + Luci.
Now, I tour regularly with St. Paul & The Broken Bones and I fill my time in between tours by continuing to play with local Atlanta artists and writing and playing my own music.
I’ve had the opportunity to sit in with or do sideman duty with these artists:
Zac Brown Band
Col. Bruce Hampton
I’ve also had the opportunity to study with these great musicians (click the name for more info):
