Under the Gallows


I was in the Air Force for ten years and have two sons who live in Korea with their Mom. After I left the military I came to Denton, TX to join forces with one of my best friends Sam Thiebaud. We decided to make music together and now we have a full album. We are releasing a second album in the next few months.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

I like it if they like it. I am a pleaser for sure.
