The Warmth of Winter 

Fall is coming to a close, and winter is upon us. When the weather turns cold, my thoughts gravitate toward the holiday. December, for me, is infused with a musical spirit, like no other time of year. Being surrounded by Christmas music at each years' end was a vital part of my melodic upbringing. So I'd like to pass that energy along to you, with a free acoustic holiday live stream special on Sunday, December 17th at 4pm Pacific. I’d like to present to you, CATCHING SNOWFLAKES.

When I was young, I would always look forward to the day that our family would assemble our artificial Christmas tree and decorate it together. My hands stained with forest green dye, the carpet scattered with fake plastic pine needles. The thought of this ritual still evokes a strong feeling of nostalgia and warmth for me now.

I was raised in the church, where Christmas had a very strong spiritual meaning, but I was captivated by and enamored with the cultural aesthetic of red and green, ice and snow, bells and lights. A festive cacophony to close out each year, all wrapped up in songs with rich and varied lore. I'm so into it.

I'll be playing some classic Christmas tunes, a few originals, and some covers of my favorite holiday songs by modern artists as well. I'm excited to excavate my memory and search my heart and mind for the songs that move me the most, so I can learn and share them with you. I hope you'll mark your calendar, and RSVP for this special event. Let’s spread some cheer and get swept away by the red and green, ice and snow, bells and lights.

Thanks for reading, and thank you so much for your support. I eagerly anticipate celebrating the holiday season with you through some acoustic tunes. I'd love for you to share with me your favorite holiday memory, or Christmas song. To stay up to date, please follow me on social media, sign up for my mailing list, and RSVP to the live stream on Facebook! Can't wait to see you there!

Indie Alt-Folk Evolution 

Church hymns gave birth to my musical curiosity, and one lucky day flipping the television to MTV set me on a path that would start with emo-rock and end with folk-pop. By the mid 00s, an acoustic guitar became my constant companion as I documented my artistic growth through YouTube videos.

In the pursuit of realizing the potential of a deep connection I feel for this craft, I embraced the challenge of songwriting through the encouragement of the online music community. This ultimately led to sharing several west coast tour dates with a group of my peers in the early 2010s.

My songs draw from a fusion of styles rooted in the deep legacy of indie alt-folk. The copper and wood that make up my instrument are not merely a tool, but an extension of my soul. I hope that my therapeutic canvas of self-discovery can spark a unique journey for each listener.

As I’ve been rehearsing my set list of original songs, I’m inspired by Seattle’s rich musical history and vibrant independent arts scene. I’m eager to share what I’ve been working on. I’m committed and excited to find a rhythm in contributing to this dynamic community.

Hours of gazing at chord charts, and hundreds of cups of tea, have all led to this. I’m filled with anticipation, ready to share and to learn. I’d like to invite you to join me on this journey. I hope to see you soon.
