    I honestly don’t do music videos, yet. I see no reason to seeing how 100% of my repertoire is instrumental songs and background tracks.

    I love both old and modern film-scores and motion picture soundtracks.

  17. Q.) What is your latest release?
    The single, The Most Unnoticed. It’s an orchestral arrangement with super fast keys, heavy violin and a big bassline at the bottom.
  18. Q.) When is your next release?
    This EP I’m in the process of mastering should be ready to roll out by the end of February 2023.
  19. Q.) Where is one place you want to travel to perform?
    Madison Square Garden would be a dream come true.
  20. Q.) What’s the biggest crowd that you have performed for?
    At a local artist event in Iuka, Mississippi back in 2014. There were well over 200 people in attendance and I amassed a much larger following after that show.
  21. Q.) Who’s someone you can see yourself on tour with?
    Karra and Hans Zimmer for sure!
  22. Q.) Who produces your music?
    I produce everything on my own unless my Wife comes through with a fresh idea. This does happen more frequently than I ever would’ve imagined. She has what I’ve always called a golden ear.

    Billboarding, charting on iTunes and Spotify, touring the world and producing for the biggest names in the music industry.
