Lead Guitar, Background Singer.

ABOUT

Accomplished pianist playing for The Teal Street Band. Extensive performance experience both as a soloist, and in multiple band projects. I am well versed in music theory and feel it is critical to play great chord voicings. I am equally at home on piano, organ or synthesizer. I also play acoustic guitar, bass, and sing background vocals. I have recorded, and done studio work for a signed Nashville recording artist.

Influences

I grew up listening to, and playing music by iconic bands with amazing piano/keyboard players. Some examples are Jon Lord (Deep Purple), Keith Emerson (ELP), Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), Danny Federici (Bruce Springsteen), Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones/Allman Brothers), and Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers). And of course Billy Joel, Elton John, and Bruce Hornsby.

I love playing all kinds of keyboard-centric material from contemporary bands like Cold Play, The Fray, and The Wallflowers. I play music from multiple genres ranging from rock, pop, alternative, R&B, country, to jazz. I play music from Martina McBride to Amy Lee; from Jefferson Airplane to Cold Play.
