Artist Bio

Influences:   Jon Foreman, Switchfoot, Jars of Clay, Fiction Family, Steven Delopoulos, Ages and Ages

I have a fondness for a variety of instruments, and enjoy making music on anything I can get to produce sound.

I have shifted the focus of my writing this year. Usually, I just start to write and then shape the song once I see what theme is surfacing. I've had a lot of good results that way, but now I'm starting to write with sync licensing in mind. I intend to polish and submit the songs with the best fit for placement in television, film, and advertisements. So you can expect a lot of what you hear from me this year to be more cinematic. 🙂

Please let me know if any of my songs this year sound like they would fit in a specific show or commercial. I would greatly appreciate it, and take it as a compliment! If any of you have had success in this arena, I would also be grateful for any tips. And of course, feedback is always welcome!

I'm looking forward to making this my most productive FAWM ever. The last 2 years I've done 19-20 songs while working full time...this year, I scheduled a week off, so we'll see what happens.

Thank you, fellow FAWMers, for being the most constructive, supportive, courageous songwriters anywhere and everywhere. You all rock just for putting yourselves out there.

    So you do much stuff with NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Assoication International...but they have chapters all over...)? I'm just wondering if that might be a place to connect with publishers and pitch songs for synch and what not..

    the mods have said that there's nothing they can do about it- and i know some other folks who have the same problem with firefox, i dont know why , maybe the version you're using?supposedly mine is up to date, but im not much of a computer person... as i said, if you 'enable downloads' then those folks affected can listen...

    i'd like to listen to some of your songs, but in firefox, the player won't play (the mods here have looked into this, there's nothing they can do) If you enable downloads, tho, then us firefox people can listen.... (its a box you can check for each song when you post or anytime after)

    Hey, thanks for listening to my song about Eric. Yes, he laughed quite a bit, which was really my goal. 😀

    Likewise looking forward to hearing yours! I was going to sit it out this year, but I'll do at least a couple.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing! How the hell have we not crossed paths?! Regarding a collab, I think our voices would blend well together. I think a piano/guitar thang would be fun. I'd be down sir!

    Thanks for the kind words! I've not managed to get through all of that thread yet, but am looking forward to hearing yours soon. And thanks for the welcome!
