ABOUT

I am a classically trained Shakespearean actor by trade. Before entering school for that trade, I had 5 years of piano lessons, 3 years of acoustic guitar, 10 years of singing in choirs, 4 years of private voice lessons, and a few years of messing around with harmonicas, recorders, penny-whistles, and all sorts of percussion and hand-drumming. Since graduation and in the course of a 20-year career in live theatre I have picked up mandolin, bass (electric and upright), and drums. My practical singing range is right at 4 octaves, and am considered a "true bass". I have made a side-career out of performing cover songs, usually by myself with my acoustic guitar, but sometimes with bands from a 2-piece all the way up to big bands with horns and strings. I wouldn't call myself an impressionist, but I tend to vocally sound like the person who made the song famous.
