I am a guitarist/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter in my mid 50’s with previous song pick-ups in the early 90s by A&R from BMG and Warners. I had been out of music for a while and just recently decided to get back into it and start up a project of original material. I have lots of material from years of writing that I have played informally for groups with good response.

My main guitar style sounds like a blender full of Jimmy Page, Dickey Betts, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Tim Reynolds. The material is diverse but is mostly along the lines of blues rock/roots rock/folk rock. Lyrically the songs tend to feel influenced by Neil Young, Tom Petty, and Roger Waters.
