Of Special Note
As a member of the Atlanta Boy Choir starting at age 5 (his first audition) he began touring in Europe every summer with them at the age of 9. As well as singing in the choir, he was also the 'little drummer boy' for many years. He received an amazing education on music, performance, and life from the director Fletcher Wolfe, and through his experiences as a member of the ABC. The first recording he was a part of (Benjamin Britten's War Requiem) was with the ABC and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra & Chorus and it won 2 Grammys!
In 2009 & 2017 he had the good fortune of receiving the Austin Music Award for Best Drummer/Percussionist. Quite an honor in a city that's known for it's great musicians and rich musical history!
