ABOUT

I've been singing my whole life, but only playing guitar pretty seriously the past few years. I'm just getting to the point of being a passable rhythm guitarist. I like traditional music, unaccompanied singing, and early blues. I also like electronic music including experimental noise/glitch/circuit-bent music. But my main thing is singing.

EQUIPMENT

A so-so acoustic guitar. A couple of microphones and a very small personal PA. I run light on equipment because I don't need much for what I'm doing now, but if there were gear that I need to have, I'd work to get it.
