I started out in the 80's with a band "Hot Grass" formed by myself and another member in 1982. We started out playing bluegrass music in the eastern Michigan area. The band was known for its up tempo approach while blending in some bluegrass standards. In 1986 the band won the Marlboro Country Music Contest held in Michigan. The accomplishment was a shot in the arm because not only did it give us more exposure but also opened more doors for the band.
After Hot Grass members went their own way in 1987, I had worked with other groups performing rock and country music in the area. But as many of us know, family comes first. I took time away for music for most of the 90's with the idea of getting back into it one day.
In 2001 Hot Grass reunited and started performing again for about 2 years until the death of one of its members.
Since then I have spent time writing and recording just for enjoyment. But once in while something inspires you to keep going. I have no specific style of music although bluegrass and country is what I started out with, I enjoy all styles. I was inspired by many artist growing up such as Waylon Jennings, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins and Mark Knopfler.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to give our music a spin. If you like what you hear, let us know.
Because of the internet, it gives us all a chance to put our ideas in front of more people than ever before. If nothing else, if just one person listens and likes what they hear, then it's all worth it.
Thank you and Keep On Pickin!
