Hopesfall is a post-hardcore band formed in 1998 in Charlotte, NC. I am a founding member and played guitar / background vocals from 1998 - 2002, again for two reunion shows in 2011, and recently rejoined the band in 2019 to write new material. Over a decade, the band would undergo many line-up changes, but always drew from the same core group of lifelong friends to source new members. We released music on Trustkill Records and Takehold Records throughout the early '00’s. We are currently signed to Equal Vision Records.

After news broke of the impending closure and redevelopment of Tremont Music Hall, I was contacted by Andy Smith of Charlotte Magazine to write a piece on the importance of the music venue in my life and the development of Hopesfall. 

The music and media website Noisecreep featured a profile with me regarding the Hopesfall reunion shows.
