I moved to NYC from Corpus Christi, Texas when I was 19, have been scoping the city out and playing with a lot of different people, and probably still haven't played with enough. I wrote the majority of my original songs before I came to NY, but continue to write and have grown as a musician since moving to the city. The bluesy vibe and a lot of my influences are rooted in folk music and Texas-bread music. I love rock 'n roll (though I don't always write in that heavy riff-driven dynamic) for the energy, the rebellious attitude, and that combination of music and lyrics that point out the familiar, yet taboo. I love that. I love songs that tell a story or give you a sensation that something that is inside of you is inside us all. Something not so average. Speaking of rock 'n roll, I now play lead guitar in a band called Cholalas with another Texas transplant such as myself. I am just starting to get myself out there after somewhat of a roller coaster of adjusting and adapting. I have been lucky enough to meet some very talented souls who helped me along the way and look forward to what's to come.
