I'll try to give you a short Bio. I started playing drums at age4. Started playing professionally writing songs and self-training to sing while playing drums at age 9. I began working as a Nashville session player around age 15. I moved back to Indiana at age 18. My mother was having health issues and I wanted to stay close by to help her. I've played in large venues opening up for bands like Rare Earth,Foghat,Molly Hatchet and Rick Derringer. Built my own studio and production company in 1987 writing and recording my own music I played most of the instruments bass keys etc. myself. as well as providing a reasonably priced studio for other local musicians and bands. In 1999 my oldest daughter was struck by car and had to be lifelined to Riley Hospital. we were devastated both emotionally and financially. I closed down my company. And I sold all my recording equipment. I've been playing mostly in cover bands the past several years. I've invested the wages not only provide for my family but to buy recording gear Mics and instruments.. The local music scene here is slow. That is why I'm pushing so desperately to find an agency or solid band. I need money to not only take care of my mothers medical needs. But to pursue my passion music and performance.
