First and foremost, I considers myself a songwriter and guitarist before a singer. Many over the years have encouraged me to start performing again, but it was my biggest fan, my wife, who gave me the loving kick I needed. Over the last three years, I have been performing at home parties, just me, my guitar, voice and a small intimate audience. Today I am playing at local bars/restaurants on weekends and am enjoying the energy and vibe of a larger live audience.
I have been playing guitar for over 25 years. Only since 2007 have I started to write with much more freedom than I've ever experienced previously, thanks to a major life event. Music should be something that frees you, and it has done that for me and I hope it does that for those who listen to me.
I write from the heart and have been called a storyteller. Each song either comes from my own personal experience or is an attempt to musically interpret another's story.
My guitar style is typically very percussive. One friend once told me, that I have my own unique style that falls somewhere between Bo Diddley and Johnny Cash.
I hope you enjoy these expressions.
