I have a very eclectic background of musical influences. From an early age, I listened to icons such as the Beatles, Buddy Holly and Elvis. During my teenage years I began to also gravitate towards, and gain appreciation for the Pop & R&B;world. It was my Senior year in High School that I found a new passion for music........Country Music!! Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Tim McGraw & Alan Jackson drew me into the amazing storytelling, melody, and "True Lyrics" that Country Music offers. As a Staff Writer & Producer, I use all of the many influences I grew up with to help inspire each and every song.

I Prefer To Write:
In addition to writing with other professional and hit songwriters, I am the Executive Producer of an amazing young artist, Haeley Vaughn. She was a fan favorite on American Idol in 2010 and we're currently in the studio recording her project. We are writing with the best writers in Nashville and are slated to start doing industry showcases in 2011. Most of the songs we're recording and putting on her project are songs I've written either with her, or one of many of my Hit Co-writers in Nashville.
I just got a song cut as a songwriter with Canadian Artist Drake Jensen. The album comes out May of 2011 and will be released in Europe, Japan, Australia and many other countries of the world. The song on his album is "Still On The Radio". "Still on The Radio" is slated to be released as a single in the U.S. in 2012 with a music video to follow. I have many indie cuts with artists such as The Bronk Brothers (Rockin' Brother Duo out of Michigan), Stevie West, Liz Moriondo among others. I also just produced a song I wrote with Cece Dubios that was just released as a single by U.K. Artist Josh O'Keefe. The song is called "Sunshine" and they have already shot the video awaiting world-wide release! Many more stories to share in 2012! Please enjoy the songs on this page, which are one's I have written with some amazing artists, and in most cases I produced and am singing background vocals. I am so excited to share my music and can't wait to see what 2012 will hold for me, my family and my fans. Thank you so much for your support! Beau
Along with my Co-Writers Will Rambeaux & Brandon Freeman, I was winner of a Major Song Contest in Nashville in 2007 with a Major Station picking up the song which played consecutively for 6 months on air. It was judged by well-known executives in Nashville and the song was consistantly voted a top song in rotation. In 2011 I had many cuts on artists albums, some of which are posted on the site. Most importantly, the Greatest achievement in my life is winning the Self Proclaimed "Dad of the Year" Award consecutively from 2004 to Current! :) I LOVE my 2 Girls!!!
In August of 2011 I started my own Entertainment company: Next Big Thing Entertainment. I have an office on Music Row in Nashville and am currently producing and writing with some truly amazing artists. I have over 20 hit co-writers who help write hit songs for artist projects. I have had many independent artist cuts and currently have many of my songs on "Hold" with some of the biggest artists in Country Music. I also have a strong network with managers, publishers, and promoters/PR firms that work with me to help artists achieve their dreams. I look forward to making a name for myself as a writer, producer and mentor in the music industry for many years to come.
