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 recreate those studio sounds in a live performance situation.
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 back to Nashville I have applied my training and experience to work as a touring and recording musician. I am passionate about traditional American music, but also very much enjoy exploring modern popular music and how various instrumentation fits into those styles.
Over the last 8 years, I have toured across the United States and Canada performing in stadiums and arenas, and on promotional tours for radio and television. In that time, I have also recorded and produced records across genres in the studio. Acts that I have toured or recorded with include Kane Brown, Easton Corbin, Granger Smith, Luke Pell, Stephanie Quayle, Jaida Dreyer, and Colin Elmore.
