I started playing the drums around age 11. At 16 I bought my first guitar and started messing with it and learning songs by moving the needle back on the record. :) I always sang in church, but started singing in bars around age 22. I played the drums in a country band and did vocals on the southern rock tunes and contemporary country. I eventually moved up to lead vocalist in a rock band around 1995 for about three years and then stopped performing. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I picked up a guitar again and started getting the performing bug again. Currently I am playing solo performing originals and covers. My goal is to one day put a fun band together that has the same goals I have. I am currently in the process of recording my first "album", and my dream is to really intertwine genres, and get rid of "musical fences".
