First and foremost, I am an entertainer. I play shit-hot guitar licks, write great tunes about the human experience and can hold a conversation like you read about. 

But most importantly, I've learned how to be better than myself. I'm a lost cause gone rogue and I plan on being a tremendous ally to others in need.

Thanks for visiting my site!

Here are my most popular tunes, arranged in a convenient way to keep you hopping back and forth between songs you're familiar with and songs that you aren't. My live set follows a similar pattern as I feel it helps make for an easier time getting into my material. 

All my tunes are available on your favourite streaming services!

Thank for you listening! I live to entertain those who are cool enough to keep the world running.



I've been putting out these YouTube videos for over a decade now, adopting video early on was the smartest move I've ever made. These guys have single-handedly separated me from the pack and allowed me the monetary freedom to pursue my craft with stress of being thrown on the street!

Here are a few of my favourites, please head over to my channel if you want to view the 50+ others. 

Charlie puth - attention

This is a great example of my intentions with covers. Essentially, I find the words, the form, and the melody before abandoning all of it and just doing whatever I think is fun & interesting. 

It's alright I'm just afraid - jesse daniel smith

I come from an acoustic guitar, singing background (even though it's never been my strength) and I regularly put out stripped down, live performances like this. This song is about my constant struggle with anxiety and the questions I ask to keep the worries away. 

First day of my life - bright eyes

This is the one that started it all, frankly. After doing the gringo euro-trip I returned home to find a request in my Tumblr inbox. A couple wanted this song recorded, the only requirement being that I do whatever I wanted with it. After a successful post on reddit's r/music sub-reddit, my formal career as a musician begun.
