ABOUT

I've been playing for more than 40 years; travelling professionally in the early 80's, playing in nearly all of the lower 48 states and parts of Canada. Since leaving the road, I have played mainly Christian events, conferences, CD releases, church services, etc. and occasional coffee house or winery.

I am interested in working with a solo artist, duo or trio who want to create exceptional music. Although I'm not looking for a permanent commitment at the moment, the right chemistry could change that.

I welcome opportunities to perform or record contemporary folk, adult contemporary, jazz, and/or world music, etc (think Norah Jones, John Mayer, Chris Rice, Callie Moore, Tracy Chapman, James Taylor, or similar instrumental).

Would enjoy being able to help take the right person's original work to the next level.
