What defines “Success” to you…
Success to me is getting my music out there and seeing my audience engage and really enjoy what I do.
How did you figure out that music was what you really wanted to do with your life…
My Mom was a singer in the church and I grew up singing as early as 5 years old. The limitless images that can happen through music.
What’s your priority…
I just want people to feel something when they listen to my music. I’m called to do what I do because it’s in my blood.
What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking..
A very good friend of mine in the industry told me to never change. Do what I love to do and do it from the heart.
How difficult is it for you to stay focused on making music..
It’s extremely difficult to stay focused. There are so many directions an artist gets pulled in. In fact even if you are a Texas artist, you are expected to produce your music in Texas to maintain support of your fans and the local industry/ stations. At the end of the day, I just want my fans to have a great time listening to my music.
I live in…
I currently live outside of Fort Worth, Texas where country music has been around for many years with Billy Bob’s in the Stockyards North of Downton. There are many mainstream and up and coming artist in the area.

A famous river in Texas where thousands of people gather for a crazy time floating with friends. My music is I have deep roots in music going back to my Mother singing in church. Music is a part of my soul, I write what moves me and from the heart. My music is a mixture of country, classic rock and Americana.
