I am an award-winning singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Tennessee. I love creating music. You will find that God is the center of all that I do. I want to please Him. Period. I long to leave a legacy that will endure for generations. Yes, that is a major task, but I'm a visionary at heart. If I (truly) impact one person for God's glory, while on this earth, then I will be happy.

I want to live for His purpose until my very last breath. I will never stop creating as long as I am able to do so. Sometimes you will discover that I touch on life topics through my music as well. These songs are presented in as pure of a way as possible. Maybe you will be able to relate to a song or two.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by to take a listen. If you enjoy what you hear, I'm asking that you go over to my YouTube channel and like, comment and subscribe. I really want to concentrate on growing my channel over there. It means a lot to know people are touched by my music.
