Multi-Platinum Selling Singer and Songwriter

daughtryI’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the top artists in the business as a singer and as a songwriter, appearing on over 30 million records. I can be heard all over the world on radio, television, in film, jingles and games.

After recording deals with Virgin and Universal records, I began writing songs for other artists and landed my first cut with *NSYNC which went on to sell over 5 million records.

In 1999 I signed with Notation Music Publishing, writing songs for acclaimed international artists and winning more gold and platinum awards with Bad Boy Records artist DREAM and country singer JESSICA ANDREWS.

In 2004 I began working with B.O.K. Music Publishing and The Royalty Network. In 2007 my song “CRASHED” appeared on the highly successful, Grammy nominated DAUGHTRY debut, which sold almost 6 million records word-wide. The song was a hit at rock radio, was licensed repeatedly for commercials and TV sports events and was even used in the Super Bowl. In 2010 my hit single “I GET OFF” put Atlantic artist, HALESTORM, on the map and was one of the top 10 rock singles of the year.

I recently added more gold records to my collection with SHINEDOWN’s “AMARYLIS”, HALESTORM’s debut album, “HALESTORM “and “THE STRANGE CASE OF ….”.

Other recent rock and pop collaborations include TRAIN, CASH CASH, SKILLET, WE AS HUMAN, COURAGE MY LOVE, American Idol’s JASON CASTRO, Brushfire Records alumna ZEE AVI, and Latin Grammy Award winners JESSE & JOY.

In addition to writing songs, I have sung background for numerous artists and written and sung on jingles for every product imaginable, including Folgers, Coke, and Pillsbury.

I co-wrote the current theme song to WINDY CITY LIVE, a daily talk show out of Chicago, have had songs in numerous other TV shows and am the voice of American Idol Barbie.
