Appalachian music has a way of casting spells upon those who are drawn to the down-home sound. It’s familiar melodies and infectious harmonies set the stage for telling stories ’bout life in Appalachia. Having southern roots, I am accustom to and easily enchanted by the nature of this music and notably it is where my heart wanders.

Born To Lose

Having grown up in the south, I am accustomed to the down-to-earth quality of country style music. I decided to revisit these roots and write some country tunes. I was fortunate to have connected with a great group of quality musicians who were able to make it all happen. Many thanks to all for helping me bring it back to “From Whence I Come.”
