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.
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.
Over the last 8 years, I have toured across the United States and Canada. In conjunction with artists, I have promoted singles to over forty radio stations. I have performed in stadiums, arenas, and on national television, played and produced records in the studio, 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.
