I’m a songwriter and performer from Western North Carolina. I also run a construction business to pay the bills, but I’m doing everything I can to work towards making a living off of my music and creativity. It’s slow going, and there are obstacles everywhere. But I’m committed to following the songs, and I’m not about to give up. This blog is intended to be a journal of that particular journey, and a documentation of both the tensions and blessings of having one foot in the creative world, and one in a very practical and time consuming business. Some days I want one and not the other, some days I want both, and there are days I don’t want either of them. I hope to expand on all this here, and perhaps even make some sense of it all.
