Encore was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio along with additional production at House of Blues and Farmland Studio. The album features eleven songs, including “All On My Mind”, “King For A Day”, and “Girlfriend”, as well as renditions of songs by Ted Hawkins and Willie Nelson.

He’s been featured on Dave Cobb’s Southern Family compilation, contributed a song to Brandi Carlile’s Cover Stories LP and crafted the original song, “What Would It Take”, for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.
