I was recently chosen as the winner in Southwest Airlines' "Take the Stage in Music City" competition! I submitted a 30 second song that I wrote specially for the contest, and they picked me! The prize included a trip to Nashville, TN to play at Musicians Corner, an acclaimed music event in the heart of Nashville on September 7th. I also performed a short set on board the flight from Denver to Nashville on September 6th. Definitely an exciting moment for me! Here's a video Southwest put together about it:
During my quick mini tour to Northern CA in early May, I was fortunate enough to share a stage with John Mayer! Yes, John crashed our Songwriters in the Round at Hotel Utah on May 2, played a set, and then stuck around and jammed with each of us four songwriters featured that night. What a surreal experience! Here's a rough video I was fortunate enough to acquire in which John sings and plays along to my song You Always Run:
Also, if you missed it on Facebook or Twitter, I was hand-selected by Grammy Award winning producer John Shanks as one of 10 finalists for a nation-wide singer songwriter competition through Guitar Center! I had a blast competing on March 2, 2013, and though I didn't bring home the grand prize, I made some amazing connections. I look forward to what doors this could open in the future...
