Joy, Twin Peaks, Pete Yorn, and more, while earning acclaim from NPR, Paste, NME, and others with his uplifting, anthemic songs that embody the Midwestern spirit.

We asked him a few questions about his musical upbringing, the first record he ever owned, and more. Read on to get to know him better!

Q & A

What was the first album you ever owned on vinyl?

Rumors – Fleetwood Mac

What have you been listening to lately?

Soccer Mommy, Phoebe Bridgers, Muzz

Where is your favorite place in the world and why?

Either Detroit or Nashville. Both cities have so many great memories for me, plus the food in both places is 10/10

What is the best live show you’ve seen, and why was it the best?

U2 360 Tour in Lansing, MI. I was a senior in high school and I waited in line for 17 hours and I got to be in the middle of the inner circle of the stage and I cried a lot.

What are some things you have to have on the road with you?

Air mattress, neck pillow, Crocs

What is the craziest thing that’s happened to you on the road?

One time we were playing a festival in New Orleans and I met Bryan Cranston backstage. He had Halloween face paint on and I was very star stuck. But he let me take a picture with him.

Who or what influences your music?

I think it changes a lot. But I’ve been consistently inspired by The National and anything Justin Vernon does.

What album do you play on repeat, and what do you love about it?

Trouble Will Find Me by The National. I’ve listened to it a few times a week ever since its release in 2013. It might be nostalgia but to me it’s a perfect record from start to finish.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?

I’d love to work with Chris Walla. I respect him so much as a musician and I think we could make something pretty rad.
