Guitar / vocals for Cannes Brulees (Native American Roots Rock - original) since 2004 (one CD "Raising Cane" released 2005, second CD "Rekindled" in perpetual post-production). Occasional contributor to Chickenhead (feat. Rick Tobey, 2014) and Shotgun Double (feat.Jay Dufour). Former bands include 61 South (Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Modern Country), Lift (Prog. Rock), Too Much Coffee (also feat. Rick Tobey), and the Instant City Band. Been playing since I was 12, but always as a part-timer. Not actively looking for more, but always open to new collaboration. Love to do a Brit Invasion band, also a Roots Rock band. Love to harmonize, too!
