Starting 2019 with a debut of my latest track “Riding on a Wave”.
I’ve always considered myself a live musician and performer. Even though I’ve spent a lot of time in studio’s and messing around with recording, I’ve never been to crazy about the recording process. For me, the thrill was always in the live show. This past year I’ve spent more time sitting, writing and putting tracks together and working on an EP.
All music is done by me. Pop on some headphones or crank up your sound system and give it a listen.
Recently I was asked to contribute an article about my experiences as a Deaf individual working in the music industry. As I continue freelancing and navigating jobs in this competitive and ever-changing industry, I decided to gear my post towards other D/Hoh individuals trying to make it in “hearing industries” and share some advice. The article got a great response throughout the UK and here in the US.

April 13 and 14th saw the D-PAN team visiting Delaware School for the Deaf to give a two day workshop to Deaf and hard-of-hearing students on how to create a music video. We had 22 students, and in just 2 school days, we successfully guided the students through the process of brainstorming, performing, filming, and editing an ASL music video. It was a lot of hard work, but amazing to see how the students pulled it off with the limited amount of time they had. Congrats to them all.

Here is the final video the students created.
I also realized that I never shared the final video by the students from our February workshop, so here is “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift filmed by students from our Holley Family Village ASL music video workshop.
