I grew up in Rayville, LA and was raised in a Christian home where biblical principals were taught frequently and modeled as much as possible when raising three children. As I got older, I grew to hate all of the “dos and don’ts” that the people of the church always demanded. I felt like I had enough of that between the rules at my house, rules at school, and rules in general. It was around this time that I began to rebel against the church and everything that was “good”. I spent from my senior year of high school and went in to college doing what the world said was “cool” and “right”.
I picked up a guitar about 9 years ago and found a passion for music. As soon as I started learning though, I left for basic training in the Air Force and put the guitar down. After returning from basic training, I picked it back up found a love for singing and songwriting. I played all throughout college, and just about anywhere people would let me. After graduating, I released an album called Kill The Bottle and moved to Nashville shortly after to pursue a music career. I was not there long before I began to question what it was all about. I felt like I was taking paths that I didn't need to be on and ultimately returned home with one question, "What is the purpose of life?" Upon my return I went on a spiritual quest and ultimately gave my life over to Jesus Christ. During that time, I threw away all of my "Kill The Bottle" albums and put down the guitar and swore I would never play again. I felt like it had become a god in my life. But the singer/songwriter in me was awakened about 6 months later, and songs about my journey began to pour out.
I released an EP "Set Me Free" last year and since then have had great opportunities to play and share a hopeful message. Ultimately, I feel I have been given a great gift in singing and songwriting and want to use it to glorify Him!
