Born at University of Washington hospital in Seattle, I was adopted as an infant by the Kosel Family and then moved to the Carbon County area of Montana 12 years later. I grew up fishing Rock Creek's waters, playing guitar, and wandering the beautiful region like a country boy will do until eventually graduating from Eastern Montana College and pursuing a diverse career in business. I emerged as an artist and musician onto the Montana scene in 2016 where I began playing solo shows featuring classic country covers. I then moved forward with several different band formats until settling in as a touring solo artist, reliant on the simple essence of original songs and poetry delivered with a big voice and a great guitar.
I've written my album trilogy comprising a collection of poetry and music that I have created from an unusual, interesting life. My mother instilled in me a sunny perspective and raised me as a true Child of the Light. I try to make good choices, enjoy the calm after a storm and exhibit kindness. I crave the healing balance of the sea and love the soulful power of the Beartooth Mountains. I've tasted both darkness and light so I recognize that creating positive change and expression through music is a healing, beautiful thing I do.I admire women and men of character, inner beauty and fierce spirit. It is essential that men treat women with respect and love to facilitate a better world. Having felt the destructive force of bereavement and gambling addiction in my younger years, I feel that I have learned to focus my considerable energy on what is important, instead of justifying the pursuit of false rainbows.

My mother instilled in me a sunny perspective and raised me as a true Child of the Light. I try to make good choices, enjoy the calm after a storm and exhibit kindness. I crave the healing balance of the Pacific Ocean in the Seattle area, and I love the soulful power of the Beartooth Mountains and the ecosystems of Montana.
I've tasted both darkness and light so I recognize that creating positive change and expression through music is a healing, beautiful thing I do. I enjoy listening to the heartbeat of America, watching the power of youth and, feeling the sunshine on my brow. Perhaps the real healing agents for a broken heart are the unbridled expression of the feelings through music. My whole life I have felt the scintillating attraction of dropping the top on a classic Corvette, cranking up Stevie Ray Vaughan, and leaving my cares in the dust. I wish peace for myself and for the world too. Troublesome thoughts and bad energy must be laid to rest, and we must all realize our natural purpose. I know my purpose is bringing music and poetry to those who dance, laugh, cry, need light, seek peace, suffer, grieve, thirst for love, know darkness, wish for respect, or feel broken. The heavy sadness that erupts in my heart when I lose someone dear comes into balance when I am absolutely inspired by the outpouring of love and support from those who love me. The conflicts that sometimes arise in my life and the questions that dwell within my mind aren't always easily reconciled. I find peace in accepting that it isn't always possible to know all the "answers" or to always feel like I am on the "right" side of the fence.
