I had a nomadic youth in Midwest America. I have lived on a farm, on a small island, and along the muddy banks of the Ohio River. I like people; I love community. Taking to songwriting in my teens, I used the guitar to accompany my celebrations and struggles through lyrics and melody. I have no preference of genre, just finely crafted songs.

I moved west for inspiration. My biography is my music.

Track Name: Learning To Be Me - Side A
You know it’s a process
You know it takes awhile
All this time you think I would have learn the time

I wear this costume
Worn it far too long
It’s shadowed and skewed the things I’ve always known
It only takes a little time
To shed these dirty clothes
To shed everything that I’ve known

Don’t think cause I’m here
I’ve got this all figured out
I’m only learning to be me
There’s so much more down this road
And I know, I can’t make it on my own…

So here I am
I can’t claim a thing
All these blessings dangling from your hands
I can’t say I have
This figured out
When I do, I don’t…then it’s you


I guess I’ve made some progress
But there’s so much more
You think I’ve gone so far… I’m no where close

Track Name: Let Me Take You - Side B
Open up your eyes.
Tell me what you find.
Has it all been worthwhile?
What are all these games,
You insist we must play?
You know they never solve anything.

Let me take you, I can save your life

Are you lost or found,
Or still just spinning ‘round?
Drowning slow but you’re still sinking.
Let’s leave this all behind.
You know there comes a time,
To quit acting like a child.

Let me take you, I can save your life
You might fake it, but only for tonight

You’ve tried to save your mind.
And rationalize.
But there’s just no use in trying.
You’re searching for your soul
It’s no where to be found
You need to look in the right spaces

Full Chorus

Can’t you see that I could be,
Everything that you could need?

Full Chorus
