After spending years doing covers I felt like I was going nowhere and the time had come to finally branch out into songwriting. I had always loved the blues and aspired to be like Rory Gallagher and Muddy Waters, so in 2016 I put pen to paper, wrote my first blues song and my first album was underway. Like any goal the path was neither straight nor easy and I hit many bumps in the road, but thankfully after 5 years of hard work and dedication the album was complete.
