I've been playing the guitar, singing, and writing songs since I was a teenager back in the early/mid 1970's. I grew up in Las Vegas, NV.

After spending 6 years in the U.S. Army Airborne Rangers.. I started selling copies of my own solo artist Cassette Tapes, and professionally recorded copies of my own Music Videos "sold on consignment" through Tower Records. Since Tower Records has gone out of business, I've been selling my current CD's through CDBaby, and also on Apple iTunes.

Influences:
John Lennon, Jackson Browne, Bob Seger, Neil Young, The Beatles, Chicago, Grand Funk Railroad, Tom Petty, etc. Basically, most Retro Rock bands between the late 1960's through the 1990's have influenced my style of music. During the 1990's.. I've toured as an opening act with great artists such as: Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, Country Joe and The Fish, Stevie Nicks, Chicago, Bob Seger, The Platters, The Drifters, The Jesse Dreamer Band, etc.

Sounds Like:
Many Retro Easy Rock bands, as well as sounding like myself. This is always a hard question to answer. I have been influenced by Easy Rock bands and Folk Rock bands, so I just basically have that same type of sound, but not the exact same sound. I have my own Easy Rock and Folk Rock sound.
