Although he always gravitated towards music, the pressure to pursue a conventional career kept him from taking his passion for songwriting seriously. Instead he opted for culinary school, but used every weekend as an opportunity to play weddings, parties, lead worship at his local church. The encouragement from fans who’d heard him play, friends who’d heard his passion, pushed him to reevaluate his career path.
Since winning the John Lennon,Unsigned Only and International Songwriting Contests he’s signed with BEC Recordings and starting to release new music. His style—not quite pop enough for Jason Mraz but not quite folk enough for Jack Johnson—is representative of Bucks himself: laid back, positive, and full of life.
