What I Do

I play fiddle, banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar, Dobro, resonator guitar, electric guitar, baritone guitar, and sing background harmonies. I am comfortable as both a rhythm and lead player, live or in the studio. I help to create textures and sounds for artists when recording and to recreate the studio sound in a live performance situation.

Resume

Over the last 8 years, I have played shows and festivals across the United States and Canada, I have worked radio tours that promoted singles to over forty radio stations, performed on nation television, played and produced on many records, and I have released two records of original music. I have worked with Kane Brown, Easton Corbin, Luke Pell, Stephanie Quayle, Jaida Dreyer, Colin Elmore, and others.

About Me 

Born in Nashville, TN, I began playing fiddle at age six. I started gigging around Nashville at age fifteen and by seventeen I was working the broadway circuit. At nineteen I left Nashville to study violin performance formally at Berklee College of Music. After three years, I returned to Nashville to pursue a career as a touring musician. Since coming to Nashville I have toured the US, worked multiple radio tours, performed on national television, and recorded and produced records for various artists.

My Approach

Being an instrumentalist with a songwriter's background, I approach everything I do with both of those mindsets. As a live utility player, what I do must serve to support the song and the artist who sings it. As a studio musician and producer, the track and the playing has to be unique and memorable without ever overshadowing the song. The song is always the most important thing and I am simply here to provide a vehicle to get the song to people's ears.
