ABOUT

I've been a musician for 40 years. My primary instrument is lead guitar but I also play bass and drums. I have a few concurrent projects. My main project is lead guitarist/background vocals for "Remedy" (a Black Crowes tribute). I've been developing an acoustic duo with the very talented Jen Feld over the past 16 months. The pandemic slowed everything down but we're adding new songs weekly to our expanding set-list and hope to be booking some smaller bars and coffee houses by Summer 2022.

My 3rd project is co-lead guitar/lead & background vocals for Philadelphia area classic rockers (dear friends and brothers) Minds Eye View. We play mostly in the Philly suburbs.
