~ All Compositions- lyrics, guitar, vocals,harp- were written by myself, and recorded " live " in studios.~ I was born (os'born, lol) in Upper Sandusky, OH. When i was 10 years old, my pops migrated to Littleton, CO for a short couple years, b/f settling us in Durango, CO. As a self taught musician, I attended Red Wing Technical College (1990-1991) in the " Musical Stringed Instrument Building and Repair" course... .learning and jammin with the other luthiers (musical instrument makers) was a smeltering pot of ideas that started me to express oneself through the language of lyrics, song, and sound. Repairing at a few music stores in the Denver metro area, i recorded 1/2 of my first album "Wire and the Wood " at Moonrise Studio - Ken Caryl, CO , and finished the other 1/2 at Eagle Sound- Durango, CO. Throughout the 1990's, my originals received positive media. After a short leave and a traumatic head injury in 2000, i released a small quantity of underground cds w/ 4 different styles of originals in 2002 followed by a 17 song underground of the past releases in 2003. Continuing performances through 2007. I started playing "musical therapy " (2009) and a "musical buffet" (2010) at 2 different venues weekly and ongoing. I have a guitar repair company in Durango, CO and the four corners area. As you can see, music has, is ,and will be my life. Lend me an ear, and bring a Colorado way of life to your home or venue.
