What was it like growing up in Florida and how has that influenced your music?
Growing up in Florida was awesome. I was raised in a small town called Webster, Fl where everybody knows everybody. I would say it has influenced my music a lot with the way I came up around horses, the woods, and just that southern/country life style. I didn’t get involved with music personally until my senior year in high school when I chose guitar class for an elective. I was racing motocross my whole life competitively trying to make a career out of it and never made the time for music. I was raised with my dad playing the guitar around me at the house, parties, and hunt camp.
Who are some of your earliest musical influences?
My dad is a Travis Tritt, Tracy Lawrence, Gary Alan fan along with many others. That’s really the music that I remember growing up to and then I got into a lot of Chris Young, Clay Walker and a mix between new music and 90’s country. I like to take that influence into the writing room when I’m co-writing here in Nashville.
What does your songwriting process look like?
A normal week for myself in Nashville is writing either once or twice a day with a lot of the same people and mixing in different writers all the time.
What is one song that you wish you would have written?
If there’s one song I wish I could be a part of, it would be “There Goes My Life” by Kenny Chesney. The lyrics, story line, and melody in this song are one of a kind. The song has a big impact on normal people out there and I think it’s a special song.
Will we being hearing a studio version of with ya? That is one of my favorites of your originals.
I did not end up cutting the song “With Ya” but I may end up doing it in the future!
Have you collaborated with any other artists or songwriters that you’re excited for your fans to hear?
I did not collaborate with any artists for my EP, however I would love to in the future. I am excited for y’all to hear my new music and see how the people and fans react.
