Excited to announce a lifelong dream is being fulfilled and I will be moving to NYC in August to pursue all the opportunities the city has to offer there. I will be attending NYU's Steinhardt School of Music for a Masters of Jazz Performance and looking forward to the community it will automatically place me in. #NYUSteinhardtbound
My debut CD Two Worlds is ready for the first shipment. It's 7 tracks of some of my favorite music I tried to create. Alex Wignall, my musical brother, offered one of his compositions as well. Matt Shugert played Tenor Sax on it and added his dark, melodic approach perfectly. Jeremy Allen played bass and filled in all the remaining spaces. His work on Collectively is intricately woven into the rhythm section composing his own unique part in the session. I really think you will enjoy it as it encapsulates all of my love for what I call good music.
I'm excited to finally have this site launched. It's been a while in the making but I'm looking forward to utilizing it to send out a newsletter, posting announcements, and new performances and videos. If you want to keep up to date, I would suggest signing up for my mailing list or contacting me on the contact page. The album will be out December 1st, just in time for the New Year.
Thanks for all the support!

Really excited to be performing at JEN (Jazz Educators Network) National Convention, in Louisville in January 2016 It will be with a group I co-founded with my good friends Matt Shugert and Joe Anderson. We're also working on our latest release with the group entitled "Moonflower". Look for it in the new year.
