At the age of 15, Abram entered a local talent competition. With an acoustic guitar, he went on to perform a song he had written and ended up winning 1st place. Amidst the attention he received in his hometown, Abram knew he wanted to pursue music as a career.
His talents led him to Los Angeles where within six months he was sitting in front of one of the music industry’s top music publishers. “It was definitely a God thing.”, Abram says. He eventually landed his first cut with Andy Grammer on Andy’s 2014 Magazines or Novels album.
In 2015 Abram took a week-long writing trip to Nashville, TN. He quickly fell in love with Nashville, so much so, the decision was made that he’d be moving to Nashville within the month. Since moving, Abram has continued to garner attention with his strong sense of lyric and distinct melodies. His ability to write both pop and country music makes him one of the most versatile writers in town.
