my first memories involved music. as a child i remember lying in bed listening to tapes and vinyl records. mostly psychedelic and folk rock from the late 60's and early 70's... all of which belonged to my parents. beautiful song composition from bands such as led zeppelin, don mcclean, neil young & crazy horse, the beach boys, and the beatles were my genesis. i started writing poetry and short stories when i was in 5th grade. aside from nintendo marathons and backyard basketball, i spent most of my time with that. somewhere along the way, my love for music and writing intertwined. since then i've been a bedroom musician. i've been involved with several groups, done quite a few local shows, and recorded 100's of songs, but at this point i'm still making music mainly for myself. i recently finished my first record entitled "comfortable victim." aside from that i enjoy being part of the louisville music scene. i'm a huge fan of more indie bands than i could possibly name. i have a close nit family, a beautiful fiance (whom i often write about), and a lot of great friends. everything else i need to say is in the music. i appreciate feedback of any kind.
many local shows here in louisville. many more to come.
