AWARDS / ACHIEVEMENTS: Opened for John Legend, chosen by Spin Magazine to play SXSW, chosen to play NAMM, and named Best Performance of the Year by the WestCoast Songwriters NW Chapter. ​​​Originally from Portland, Oregon he moved to Southern California due to the success of his live shows, which are typically described as upbeat and fun. In the past two years, he has developed a highly sought after sound, where he frequently uses a loop pedal to mix beats, vocal harmonies and violin solos throughout his performances. In 2019, he played NAMM, SeaWorld's Seven Seas Festival, numerous clubs in San Diego's Gaslamp District, and some of the top wineries in the Southern California area, averaging 18 shows per month. Since COVID, he has built a professional studio in his home and has started recording and producing artists in Southern California. Most recently, one of the songs he produced and engineered has been nominated for a San Diego Music Award 2021.
