Originally from Piqua, OH, I been playing guitar, bass, drums, piano & mandolin since I was 5 years old. My dad was a musician & singer, so that's what really influenced me to start. He plays the steel guitar and guitar and when he was in his prime, sounded a lot like Ricky Skaggs. Although growing up listening and playing primarily bluegrass & country, Rock & Roll was aching to break loose. I started the music scene in 1999 playing with a Greenville, OH based band called, NoBull. Then I went on to play with a Piqua, OH based band called, The Never Enough Band where I had the priviledge to play with my friend B.J. Brown, until I joined The U.S. Navy in 2003. Music seemed to be at a stand still until I landed a drumming gig with a blues band in Coronado, CA at the Island Sports Bar. While I was stationed on the Aircraft Carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74), we moved to Bremerton, WA Jan. 8th 2005. At that time, I began getting into the music scene there and getting to play with and become friends with some very awesome genuine people like, Joey James Dean, Tommy Davenport, Kevin Fraser, Steve Warren, Mike Warren, Tammy Frost, Gregg Frost, Al Alto, Bud Lilly, Dana Osborn, Michael Derosier (HEART) Steve Fossen (HEART) Roger Fisher (HEART) Goldy McJohn (Steppenwolf) Scott Bringedahl (Culprit, Dana Osborn Band---R.I.P. brother) & Rick Knotts (RAIL). My influences are, KISS, Judas Priest, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin & Black Sabbath to just name a few. As far as singing influences, My friend Rob Halford, Robert Plant, Bon Scott & Axl Rose. Please email me if you would like me to play at your bar, club or special event! Enjoy the songs as they get added and I'll see you around!-- Peace, Love & Rock & Roll! \m/ -Crash
