Chicago Blues Festival, Kansas, and more! - 7/29/19 

I had an amazing time playing with Rick King's Royal Hustle at the 2019 Chicago Blues Festival! The festival was filled with musicians and fans from all around the world and I was very thankful to be a part of it! I also got the chance to hang out with Buddy Guy at his Birthday Bash and play there to open up for Toronzo Cannon! I have also started up a segment called Music Mondays where I will post a new video every Monday of something original, a cover, or anything else that is musical! I love being a part of the Chicago summer scene!

End of the School Year! - 5/29/19 

What a past crazy couple of months it has been! I have had the pleasure of doing shows with Rick King's Royal Hustle and The Smiley Tillmon band while going through all of my jazz courses at DePaul University. I was a part of the Grammy U Showcase at Reggie's Rock Club and had my Junior Recital for my college. Learning these jazz tunes has been a blast!

Shows in Chicago! - 3/29/19 

Over the month of March I have had the pleasure of playing with the Smiley Tillmon Band by filling in for Kate Moss on numerous occasions at venues such at Smoke Daddy and Hailstorm Brewing Company. They sure know how to groove! I have also had concerts with DePaul University involving the Jazz Combos and African Drum Ensemble and a great time playing with my classmates. The weekly residency at Taylor Street Tap with Rick King's Royal Hustle still lives on every Sunday and keeps getting bigger and bigger!

Being a Seat Filler at the 2019 Grammy's - 2/28/19 

I had the time of my life being a seat filler at the 2019 Grammy's! I received the opportunity to sit within the first twenty rows for the majority of the show. This musical event showcase so much talent and really inspired to to continue pursuing the music business. Later in the month I got the change to play at the Pinetop Perkins's Fundraiser in Ohio to raise money for kids to go to the Pinetop Perkins's Workshop (where I will be assistant teaching over the summer). I am super thankful to be a part of the music community and to help these kids pursue their passion in music.

National Association of Music Merchants Gathering! - 1/27/19 

My first to NAMM in Los Angeles was a HUGE success! There were so many exciting booths filled with incredible musical gear to gaze upon. All of the musicians that performed at this event were incredibly talented, especially those playing at the Gibson after party! I also had an amazing time meeting some of my heroes such as Ana Popovic, Robert Randolph, Eric Gales, and Darryl Jones. A huge thank you to Daisy Rock Guitars for sending me there, hope to be back again next year!
