ABOUT

I can offer a wide range of sounds from shimmering Fender cleans to Marshall means and everything in between. My focus as a musician is to serve the song with an emphasis on working with the rhythm section to support the vocals out front.

My playing interests range widely from 70s classic rock, 80s power pop, 70s funk, 60s psychedelic, 90s shoegaze, 80s new wave, 90s alternative, 70s outlaw-era country and even good ol’ 50’s rock & roll. And I love a lot of music from the past 25 years which style-wise is often a derivative of the prior decades. I’m always up to play great covers.

I’m even more interested in collaborating with other musicians looking to create original music of any kind. I particularly enjoy textured playing on originals.

I’m located along the Camelback corridor near 24th Street and I prefer situations that are within reasonable driving distance.
