Real Life. Real Music.
I believe it’s my calling as an artist and songwriter to make you laugh, cry ,or think. It’s my job to tell the truth about what I see and feel—and tell stories about real life. Whether I'm playing for you live or you hear it on TV or in a film, I want my songs to move you.
Which brings me to the most important part: YOU!
