Hey Everybody! I am a songwriter and performer from Birmingham, Alabama. With over eighty live performances to my credit, I've established myself as a known musician amongst the music scene in Birmingham, Alabama. I began playing drums at age 7, followed by guitar and bass at 10. As I became more familiar with guitar, my drumming led me forward into The Inward Expedition. Originally formed by Matthew and Tommy Mayfield and me, Expedition quickly took off. After adding a couple of members, the group went from playing high school shows to major festivals like City Stages and Crawfish Boil within a couple of years. After putting down the bands' first songs on a 5-song self-titled EP, we were able to promote ourselves with hard copy evidence. Only two years in, the band entered a VH1 Battle of the Bands contest. What initially looked to be a shot in the dark resulted in Inward Expedition winning the contest for Best New Band from the Southeast region, chosen from over 200 groups. This award afforded us a prime time slot on the VH1 stage at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN where we performed our songs in front of over 5,000 people. That same year we released a second EP, Down the Lights, and continued to play festivals for the next few years. Despite our success and playing over 55 shows regionally, the group members went their own ways as college came into the picture. Matthew Mayfield continued on to create formerly-Epic-signed Moses Mayfield. As I came into my high school years, the rest of the band being several years older, I began focusing more on my guitar interests. I played at dozens of school events and was asked to play on the school's choir tours, allowing me the stage in places like Rice University, Northwestern, and Brooklyn, NY. Having played coffee shops, night clubs, festivals, and having worked with several bands in the studio, I have gained a great amount of experience. I have written dozens of instrumental songs in the last five years and have had the chance to record many of them which is how I'm bringing them to you here. What you're listening to has all been written and performed by me. I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!
