I'm a solo folk rock artist living in Brooklyn, NY... my music is influenced by folk, bluegrass, pop, soul, poetry, philosophy, and people.
Band/artist history
I've been writing music for 5 years now, and have spent the past year promoting my first EP, "static." I started out singing along to Elvis when I was 8, and played piano for a while. When I was about to graduate from high school, my dad bought me a left-handed guitar, and I started writing songs a couple months later. I moved to California for school, and I've been playing shows around the Bay Area ever since, writing as I go. Now that school's done, it's been all music, all the time. Finally.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Love playing colleges and parties, and coffee shops are my home.
