He was covered in The Fort Worth Weekly and made its Top 20 Music Videos Of 2019 list. A compelling live performer, he's played over 75 shows since 2019 in DFW, Chicago, Austin, Nashville, and even Mexico City.
His second album, First They Get Your Money, released April 4th, 2020 is packed with indescribably soulful and powerful tracks that demonstrate to his listeners that he’s clearly developing into a next-level talent.
