When singing, the human voice carries much more than just the words it speaks. It carries the land it grew up on, the people it grew up with, and the accent it was born into. A voice can speak to the sound of the land. Known for writing with a maturity beyond his years, he has the kind of voice that cuts through the usual noise that surrounds us. He is an award-winning songwriter who received "Artist of the Year" and "Best Folk Recording" at the 17th-Annual Native American Music Awards, was named "Artist of Year" at the 2018 Country Music Awards for Texas, and was also a finalist on NBC's The Voice Season 11. Beyond performing, he is active in his community and is a motivational singer and speaker, with a focus on suicide and bullying issues. Topics that speak dear to all of our hearts.
