Here are some commonly asked questions I am asked about my music, from BGVs, custom songwriting, and more. 

How much do you charge for a performance?

Please contact me personally 🙂 Payment varies according to travel, accommodation, added band members, etc.

Can you write a custom song for me or someone else?

Yes! The song will still be copyrighted under my name, but it’s all yours and will be made as personal as needed. I will talk to you about the concept, instrumentation, feel, etc. I charge two hundred dollars per custom song and require a deposit of fifty dollars for time put into it. I will do my very best to get the song done, recorded professionally. If you want added instrumentation, the price will increase.

Can you take photos of me?

Yes, I charge $50 a session for people local to Nashville. For anyone that lives beyond 30 miles of Nashville, travel will need to be accommodated.

Do you give lessons/mentoring for voice/music?

Yes! 🙂 Please contact me personally.

Thanks for visiting!

I appreciate you stopping by! If you have questions, are interested in booking me for an event, or anything else that comes to mind, don’t hesitate to send me a note! I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
