Big Things Are Coming! 

I recently attended the 2nd Annual DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Musician Conference in Chicago, hosted by the great folks at CD Baby. I can't begin to tell you what an inspiring and educational experience it was for me, and many others. I am back with a renewed sense of purpose, drive, and excitement for the future of my music career. There are so many things that I cannot wait to share with all of you! Over the next few weeks, I will begin unveiling some of the details, and how you can be a part of it. I am super excited and motivated, but I can't share any of this with you if I don't know how to reach you. So, if you would be so kind as to sign up for my email list, you can be kept in the loop on all the big things I'm going to be working on. Don't worry, it's just a monthly email newsletter, I PROMISE not to flood your inbox with unnecessary emails. Thank you so much for your support, it is appreciated more than you know. Here's to bigger things! 

Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra's 'Bridge Sessions' 

I was fortunate enough to be 1 of 4 finalists in the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra's 'Bridge Sessions'. For the competition, classically trained musicians were paired with more mainstream acts to create works that combined both styles. I was paired with violinist, and DSSO concert master, Erin Aldridge. One of the songs we performed was one of my new songs, called "Down With This Ship". We combined Vivaldi's "Spring:1st Movement" from the famous Four Seasons works. It was an incredible experience, one I am very thankful for, and proud to have been a part of. Check out the video to get an idea. Erin was absolutely fantastic!

New YouTube Video! 

I finally got around to making a new YouTube video. This time around I did a cover of the song "Isolation" by Grant Nicholas. I'm a big fan of his work, so I thought I would tip my cap to him. Hope you enjoy it!
