I have written, performed, and recorded music since I was 12 years old.
Old Fighter (2015-2018)
Old Fighter was me and Stan Gibson (Motel Glory) and Micah Troublefield (Soft Neon). We played a few shows, but regrettably, we never recorded.
I wrote songs and did occasional recordings during this period, but this was a busy time – having kids, starting a business, etc.
Cannons was Greg Ellis, Stan Gibson, Mike Earle, and me. I considered us a Punk band. Of course, that word means different things to different people. We played shows from 2004-2006. We also released a full-length CD.

Just playing and writing some.
Broadwater Graham (2000-2002)
Broadwater Graham consisted of me and Ben Graham just duo acoustic singer-songwriter kind of stuff. This was my first real foray into a different side of music, like harmonies and minimalism. As Broadwater Graham, we released two CDs – an EP and a full length album. The full-length CD is entitled #B.
eddy was me, Scott Nurkin (Birds of Avalon), and Alex Livingstone (Grand Champeen). We were in high school then in college (all in separate towns). We played a lot of shows and toured the East Coast and around to Chicago. We released a 7″ record and a full-length CD.
Tonka was me, Jay Mayes, and Alex Roberts (with a brief stint by Drew Brashear). We released a list of recordings, including a tape, a 7-inch record, and a list of vinyl compilations. We also did a short East Coast tour. This was all before I changed high schools for my junior year. The other members of Tonka went on to form the band Assfactor 4 in Columbia, SC, while I went on to form eddy from Charlotte, NC.
That Cheesy Sensation (1988-1989)
When I was 12, I broke up my fledgling little band, and joined some of the guys from local band The Unvoiced to form That Cheesy Sensation. We played shows around the Carolinas and released a split 7″ inch record with a band from the midwest.
