I've been performing regularly since 2004. From 2009 to 2018 I held a twice-weekly residency at Big Shot Piano Lounge just outside Chicago, giving nearly 1000 performances. With a music repertoire that includes Sinatra, The Beatles, Beyoncé, Elton John, Maroon 5, Fleetwood Mac, Bruno Mars and so much more, my self-produced backing tracks always get people on their feet. Whether you're looking for a traditional, acoustic piano bar format or a fresh, modern take on live entertainment, I'm your guy!
Starting at age 9 I studied classical piano, but as a child my parents filled the house with music by The Beatles, Rufus & Chaka Khan, Fleetwood Mac and Earth Wind & Fire, just to name a few...so I've always been a pop fan at heart. After discovering jazz and R&B in my teens I started writing songs in earnest. I've written two songs for Grammy-nominated recording artist Maysa Leak ("Everything" and "Honey Bee") and my own EPs are currently in production. Rock, pop, R&B, electronica...I write whatever moves me on a given day, so get ready for a diverse catalog of original music!
I've never seen a path for my life that didn't involve music. Whether I'm writing for other artists, producing my own songs or performing for venues or events, I am my truest self and feel most at home behind a piano and a microphone. In addition to my 9+ year stint at Big Shot I've performed in Italy, Spain, Mexico, and the Virgin Islands during 7 cruise line voyages, and have even been flown to Canada, South Africa, and Cleveland Browns Stadium for private events. I have a healthy resume under my belt, but the best part is...I'm just getting started!
Just a little taste of my live shows!
