I grew up in the Montavilla neighborhood in northeast Portland listening to my parents' record collection which consisted primarily of 50's, 60's and 70's rock and roll. When I think about what my musical influences are I would have to say it's every rock and roll record I've ever heard. I continue to find inspiration in the new music being released today as well as older music I continue to discover.
I've been writing songs since I was very young but I didn't release my first EP, "Dream Shadows" until June of 2018. My fifth EP "Let's Jingle Awhile!" contains six original Christmas songs and was released in November, 2022.
Many of my songs evoke a blend of early to mid 60's rock and 70's southern California country rock with a modern vibe. I hope you like what you hear and that you will come back again to see what is new.
