“An unabashed pop sense … and a sly integration of cello and acoustic guitar.”
– The Times-Picayune, New Orleans, La.
“Deftly written arrangements, earnest lyrics that variously bring to mind everything from Joni Mitchell to Toad the Wet Sprocket to the Beatles to JJ Grey, with the vocal command of Jeff Buckley. … It’s a damn good record.”
– The Independent, Lafayette, La.
“A radio-ready disc.”
– The Daily Advertiser, Lafayette, La.

Thanks for stopping by my lil site! At the risk of sounding entirely too serious..here’s a bit about me:
I am a singing songwriting cellist and guitar player originally from Natchitoches, Louisiana. I’m a bit of a nomad, splitting time between Florence, Al, Shreveport and Lafayette, La. Currently, I am excited to be working on recording an album with my friend Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes at Singlelock Records in Florence, Alabama!
Over the last few years since my first release “Where You Wanna Be” I have been up to several fun things. Mainly I worked as a side-man on cello/guitar/vocals touring lots with my buddy Dylan LeBlanc in support of his latest release “Cautionary Tale”. Also, I’ve been very fortunate to be in the studio a lot playing cello on many different projects recording in the Muscle Shoals area. Muscle Shoals and Florence, Alabama (known as “The Shoals”) is an amazing vibrant creative community that I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of. If you haven’t seen the documentary “Muscle Shoals”, check it out! As of this summer, I decided the timing and the batch of songs I’ve been stashing away was right..so I asked my buddy Ben Tanner what he thought about recording and off we go! I couldn’t be more excited about the group of folks I’m fortunate to be working with on this project: Jeremy Gibson and Michael Stephens from Louisiana Appleseed on drums and guitar; Ben Tanner and Zac Cockrell of the Alabama Shakes on keys and bass; and the one and only Kimi Samson (aka Cookie Powers) on violin.
New music is on the way!

For most of this year my friend Dylan LeBlanc and I have been all across the midwest and most of the south playing duo shows with cello, acoustic guitar, and two vocals. After our last tour that took us as far as Missouri, we headed back south to Florence, AL where went into the studio and worked for a week on Dylan’s third full-length album.Read More
