ABOUT

I've led a crazy and illustrious musical career spanning many states and genres. Grew up in Arizona listening to classic and punk rock. Ive played funk and jazz saxophone, but picked up many instruments along the way including guitar and bass which are now my main performing instruments. Was in a reggae band on the Big Island of hawaii for many years. Moved to Alaska in 2009 and founded a very successful bluegrass/ folk rock group named Blackwater Railroad Company, which I was the bass guitar player and a singer/songwriter for. Extensive touring experience in state and cross country. Recorded several studio albums. Main sound engeneer for the band when one was not provided. Looking to join or start another project. Would like to play fun upbeat folk rock/Americana group with contemporary covers and adaptations. I am also open to playing Sax for a funk or AfroBeat jazz, or reggae group.
