Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I was born in New Orleans, moved to texas when I was 2 and grew up in Dallas.
I began my professional career as the opening act for guitarist Larry Carlton. I went to University of Southern California (BM, DMA), and University of Texas (MM), I do session work in Los Angeles and Nashville, and collaborate with dance troupes, spoken word artists, score for film and TV, and produce.
I've had the opportunity to perform/open for the Dixie Dreggs, Bonnie Raitt, Lisa Loeb, and jazz greats Larry Carlton, and Scott Henderson.
Right now, you can hear my TV/Film music on ESPN, VH1, Lifetime Network, WB Network, the History Channel, and the Food Network.
My bluegrass quartet – Honeywagon – has released 3 CDs on CMH records. Our 2nd release “Green Day, Blue Grass” spent over 80 weeks on the Billboard Bluegrass Top 15 Chart.
I have a new double CD coming out in August titled "Gossip, Inspiration, and Slander". 1 CD is Americana, the other a bluegrass version. More info on my website: see link below
I also am a faculty member at Belmont University School of Music in Nashville, Tennessee where he teaches jazz harmony, composition, history of American song, and arranging.
I Love: Collings Guitars, Elliot Capos, Pro Pick Fingerpicks, Red Bear Flatpicks.
