I grew up encouraged to sing by my mom, who is an amazing singer and songwriter. My first public performance was at 11 years old with a jazz band she knew, led by Mark Rouse. It was amazing and everyone was so appreciative.
I began writing and singing whenever the opportunity came up — including in plays and musicals, and studio background vocals. In 2013, Kenny McWilliams of Archer Avenue Studio approached me about doing an EP featuring several songwriters he knew. The debut of “Day to Dawn” at New Brookland Tavern was an amazing event!
My current band, Syr, is a Celtic Folk Rock band founded and led by my brother, Kyle (a former guitar teacher for Freeway Music).
