I was born and raised in the Twin Cities, MN. In the summer of 2010, I auditioned for American Idol and got a golden ticket to Hollywood. Okay, so I'm no American Idol, but I do think you'll enjoy my music... and if you don't, I'll be reassured by the fact that at least my mother does. Growing up, my dad always had Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, or Eric Clapton playing in the car. As I matured I began to truly appreciate their styles of music. Having been raised in the home state of Bob Dylan, I found it my duty to develop a folk taste as well. Hope you like my music!
