Thank you for taking time to view my application for your Festival and/or Music Venue.
I am a Canadian singer/songwriter from the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. My most recent EP, “Threshing Room Floor” is a crossover blend of Rock, AAA, and Alt Country. I perform both as a solo artist and with a full band. My sound is best described as “Nashville-meets-Coldplay” with hints of Steve Earle and Kings of Leon. Despite the lack of live music options in recent years, I have had a steady trajectory of success as a recording artist and my album was nominated for Best Rock Artist in the 2023 Western Canadian Music Awards and is currently in consideration for a 2024 Juno award in the AAA (Adult Alternative Album) category. My performance at your venue will include several original award winning songs and co-writes, and unique takes on familiar classics. You will find me professional and extremely easy to work with as we want your event to be a success!
