I grew up in Wyoming and I was never crazy about school or being organized into things in general. I spent the summers on my grandparent’s ranch working from age 13 or so- lots of hot days, Randy Travis tapes, and old pick-up trucks with broken door handles.
I went to college at the University of Wyoming, still not crazy about school. After a couple of semesters I started playing at the Buckhorn Bar with the folk crowd. I got a little band going for a while, dropped out of school, and moved to Austin to play music.
I spent two years in Austin playing a lot at the Hole in the Wall and the White Horse mainly with a couple bands and then moved to New Orleans for several months.
I ended up back in Wyoming with a stray pit-bull doing ranch work for a while and writing songs for a second record. Now I’m living in Nashville making music- you’ll most likely catch me at Santa’s bar down of Bransford playing Honkey-Tonk songs with Santa’s Ice-Cold Pickers on Sunday Nights from 7-9.
I take it all one day at a time. I like work, cowboy culture, just plain good songs, honky-tonks, New Orleans R&B, my dog, and my 95 Buick Lesabre.
I hope you like what you hear and thank you for droppin’ by!
