The dynamic, internationally touring singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist began playing fiddle at the age of four, and his virtuoso skills have become quite popular on TikTok, with over 7.5 million likes and 980k followers on the platform alone. His popularity on the app even propelled him to win TikTok’s Gamers Greatest Talent competition, earning $25k and beating out thousands of other competitors. He’s played at iconic venues like The Bluebird Cafe, 3rd & Lindsley, and been a featured performer on NPR’s Mountain Stage.
