During the summer of 2017, I received an extremely fortuitous, if not downright terrifying, text asking if I’d want to play with Robben Ford. Yes. The answer was yes. We got together, ran through some tunes, and made plans to hit the road. Fast forward a year and I still find myself inspired, musically engaged, and extremely lucky to be playing with someone who is a true master of the guitar. Rounding out the band is one of my favorite drummers on the planet, Derrek Phillips, and the multi-talented, Grammy winning producer/engineer, Casey Wasner.
Please take a moment to check out the new record, “Purple House,” featuring yours truly. And, if it so happens that we are coming to a city near you, come on out to a show!
Clinics and Masterclasses
In addition to recording and performing, I always try to make time in my schedule for teaching. Whether it’s one-on-one lessons, bass clinics, master classes, or working with ensembles, I enjoy sharing knowledge with the rest of the musical community. This year, I’ve been honored to teach at Gerald Veasley’s Bass Boot Camp, Rock’n’Roll Fantasy Camp, and Summer Jazz Camp at Furman University.
This fine gentleman is a skilled songwriter, a talented producer, and an appreciator of the best things in life. After providing the bass grooves for his previous EP, Clicking Tocks (2017), we decided to join forces to co-produce his latest release, The New Album (2019). This project features six, cleverly written compositions that will be released as singles via digital platforms.

Her powerful vocals and mindful songwriting will inspire you down to the core, not to mention the fact that she grooves harder than a mother.
