His E.P. “Rusty Strings” was nominated in Toronto’s Independent Music Awards, and featured in local and college radio. From “Rusty Strings”, the track “La Farra” was a winner of RadioAirplay’s summer contest, and songs like “Hole in the Wall” and “Complacency” have been praised and called “feel good tracks” by different publications.

His follow-up single “Sunrise” has been reviewed by publications calling it “gentle,” “warm,” and “charming”. It’s a song about waiting for a better tomorrow and second chances at life. It was released on July 5th and it’s available through every music platform.

His music has been described by Alec Cunningham of Memphis BLANK Newspaper the following way: “The music has a carefree attitude and combines sunny and beach vibes,” further stating, “the melodies of the songs seem to get people engaged and are such, that they would keep up with even the most well-known musicians of his genre”.
