ABOUT

I've been gigging in the Dallas area for many years in a variety of original and cover bands. I've mostly been a lead guitar player, but have also worked on rhythm guitar, bass, and lap steel. I've also played quite a few acoustic shows on guitar. I like to sing, but have not usually been the lead singer/frontman.

My musical resume is available by request.

I take music seriously, and want to play at a high level, but mostly play to have fun. I have a job and family so need to balance my musical aspirations with my other commitments. I'm here looking for like-minded musicians.
