2020 New Folk Finalists

2020 New Folk Finalists

I'm honored to have been selected as one of the Grassy Hill New Folk Songwriting Competition finalists at Kerrville Folk Festival for the third time. This is one of the best music festivals and songwriting competitions in the world, and I'm so excited to be returning. Some of the other 24 finalists I already know, and I'm looking forward to meeting and sharing songs with the ones I have yet to meet! Thank you Kerrville! 

New Music Video: "Out To California"

I recorded another music video for my song "Out To California" with some of my talented Nashville actor friends. It was a great way to finish out 2019. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and I hope you enjoy it!
