Mission Statement

My goal is to provide my audience with a genuine singer/songwriter experience. One that will lift their spirits and inspire them to new heights. I wish to fill their hearts and educate their minds with songs and stories in a timeless manner. I do my best with each performance to be as real and melodic as I am able. My guitar and harmonica playing skills perfectly accompany my vocals and I aim to articulate my lyrics so that the listener can follow along with the story line. I will not perform a song that I don't enjoy and feel is entertaining to the audience...I don't care how big of a hit it may be. If the song doesn't ring true to life and create an atmousphere of joy, or drama with an interesting rhythm, I don't wish to share it with the world.
