Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) my music career has taken a hit, with shows being canceled and spots I used to play not holding music at this time. As of 2021, I have taken a full-time job and am doing music part-time mainly on weekends. Shows are very sparse and will continue to be until the pandemic is over.
Thank you so much for your support and love during this challenging time!
