Singer/songwriter/guitarist. I am a committed evangelical Christian, but would consider playing opportunities with conventional bands in the right context. Love progressive/art rock. In fact, if you want samples of my work, check here:
All vocals and guitars are me, as well as all lyrics and probably 80% of the songwriting.

Vocally, I sound like Dennis DeYoung from Styx. I am best used when singing super-high tenor work (a la Geddy Lee, Jon Anderson, Dennis DeYoung, Steve Perry, etc.). Guitar-wise, I am completely addicted to the Brian May/Queen guitar tone, although I am peripherally influenced by the likes of Ritchie Blackmore, David Gilmour, Alex Lifeson, Carlos Santana, and Peter Frampton. I'll take a singing sustaining tone with dynamics over a crushing wall of buzzy distortion any day.
I can sing well, and play well, but not simultaneously. I suck at that, and, believe me, I've tried and tried to master that skill. I was in a Rush cover band as guitarist/vocalist fer cryin' out loud! Alas, I just don't mulitask well.
Hand-made custom double-cut with Burns TriSonics and a Bigsby. No amp currently--I use a DI pedalboard rig for church gigs (Covington BM-AC30-SS analog preamp pedal --> Boss GT-10 --> Radial DI2 Stereo DI box)
