Music City USA ---

I'm from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and moved to Music City USA to become an Artist / Songwriter / Producer. After a few years of Co-Writing, Recording and Performing here in Nashville, I signed my first staff writing contract with BIG TENT NASHVILLE. I’m very busy every day writing songs with Artists from around the world and I can’t describe the feeling of what it’s like now that other artists are recording and performing my songs. I also Produce songs and am the President of a small Music Production Company named THE DARK MATTER LABORATORY. This year, I produced three EP’s from Independent Americana Artists; Jason Evans from Mumford, KY; Breann Young from Beaumont, TX; and Jim Martin from Austin TX.

Working with an Artist to “Find” their voice through writing or helping an Artist “Capture” their sound through production can be a journey for a Producer and Finding and Producing my Sound is something that I’ve developed a passion for along the way.

On any given day here in Nashville,  I might be Writing and Producing a Country, Folk, Rock or Americana song or Artist but my Style and Artistry leans more towards Contemporary Pop /Rock. I lead my own Band here in Nashville and love working with different writing and production teams and as an Independent Artist, I enjoy the creative freedom of going between genres and trying to create something unique and original for my fans.
