Final Stages of EP and New Dates 

Hope everyone has survived the winter weather and is ready for spring to be here! Nashville had a few snow storms, but nothing this "Parkite" couldn't handle. Amidst the snow storm, I've been working really hard on getting the tracks ready for my upcoming EP. With the amazing help of Tim Smith, the songs are starting to come to life and we are in the final mixes stages! I'm extremely excited to share this music with you, and am looking to release my EP in late April/early May. I am also recruiting the help… Read more

Back in Nashville! 

After an amazing 10 days in Miami, I am back home in the wonderful, but much colder, city of Nashville, TN. It truly was an amazing week for me back where I called home for 4 years.

The EP will contain 5 tracks and will be a mix of jazz, funk, and… Read more

Busy start to 2015 

As a new year comes around, I have a lot of very exciting things going on this month. Besides various up coming gigs in the Nashville area (which you can check out on my "Upcoming Events" tab), I will be traveling back to Miami at the end of the month to record my first EP!! I am super excited to finally get a chance to record and make my own record, and even more thrilled to be able to do it where I went to college and with the same people that played on my recital. Mentor and longtime Nashville producer… Read more

Lakland Basses and Taria Show 

Fall comes around... for the first time in 4 years for me! After going to college in Miami, I'm welcoming the cooler weather and falling leaves. I'm really proud to say that I now sponsor Lakland Basses, and huge thanks to Steve Pirruccello up at Lakland for hooking me up with an absolutely amazing instrument. Check out my gear page for the link to the Lakland website.

While the wedding season is certainly dying down, I've been spending more of my time working with an up and coming country artist named… Read more
