I play a wide range of musical styles. I regularly perform with a local bluegrass group known as The Silver Creek Bluegrass Band. I have performed over 100 shows with this group since its initial incarnation as The Watershed String Band in 2015. I have been hired by noted musicians Jacqueline Rose and Julian Davis for live performances.
This solo effort of my own is based around a variety of influences ranging from world music, American folk music/primitive guitar music, classical music, blues, and general singer-songwriter material. I graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2017 with a Bachelor's Degree of Music and a minor study in business administration.
