About The Artist

I love all things music! I am a music producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. I co-founded the music festival, Bash in the Grass, that took place outside of Brookings, SD and featured artists such as Coolio, Train, Tone Loc, Blues Traveler, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Fastball, Soul Asylum, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. I am the owner of an independent record label, Bassment Rock Media. I am also the owner of a music publishing company, American Accent Publishing. I’ve signed several artists and songwriters and am working to build a music library.

I am the curator of the ‘South Dakota Music’ playlist on Spotify and YouTube. This is a work in progress to help promote all things music in South Dakota.

My future goals include producing a documentary, founding a not-for-profit charitable entity, being a music promoter, and owning a music venue.
