Fun Stuff about the Artist

Embarrassing Moment

My most embarrassing moment came when I was a finalist in the 2017 Songwriter's Serenade songwriting competition in Moravia, TX. After losing the competition, I was called to join the other contestants for a final bow. On my way up the steps to the stage, I tripped and had to catch myself with my hands. I recovered as smoothly as I could and pretended it never even happened. ICE IN MY VEINS!

My Instrument

The guitar I learned on - and wrote my first songs on - was a gorgeous Takamine that had been lying around my parent's house for some time. The guitar had belonged to my Mom's brother, but he couldn't play anymore after suffering a car crash that left him largely paralyzed. Every once in a while my Dad would pick it. As a beginner, it kind of became my guitar. But I have one now that is all my own, and I left that one in the care of my Dad.
