|I began songwriting in college in 1993. My songwriting was born out of a frustration of not being able to sing most of the material from my favorite artists when I would sit down at the piano, on account of them all being tenors. Since nobody was really writing music with basses in mind, I gave it a shot. My first attempt actually resulted in an eight part a capella choral piece, but eventually I figured out how to write for one voice!
My first decade of writing was all for me to try to find my songwriting voice while experimenting with lots of different styles. In late 2003, however, I began approaching songwriting as a profession, by writing for the commercial marketplace and for other peoples voices. Specifically, Im writing for the country genre because Ive always loved the storytelling and the wordplay that are its hallmarks.
