Voting for the TOP 15 ends Thursday the 18th of July at 7PM PDT



Who or what is your musical inspiration?

I am a songwriter first so my biggest influences are songwriters like Dean Dillon, Tom Douglas, Tony Lane, James Taylor, Bill Withers, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan.

What message do you try to convey through your music?

I’m a country songwriter so that is mostly where I practice my craft. Country is about life, love, heartbreak, & lessons.

What would you do with $10,000?

I would record the album I’ve always wanted to record but never quite been able to. I’ve released albums but was restricted on how I could do it. $10,000 would allow me to make the album that I know would be the best possible album I could make!
