ABOUT

Hello, thanks for checking out my profile. I've been a performing musician since I was 13 years old (underage in roadhouse country-southern rock bar band with musicians more than 20 years older than me... interesting experience). Since then I've played in an extraordinarily wide range of groups doing both original and cover music in New York and Boston before relocating to Atlanta in the mid-90's. I'm looking to have fun playing and performing with others that are committed but easy going. I’m open to do any great music and can pick up and play pretty much anything very quickly. After 50 years, I still take lessons from the best teachers and play at least 3 hours a day. Very reliable. No drama and no stress.

Influences

My influences range from jazz to rock to county players. I would describe my playing as melodic, punchy, articulate, and in your face. As I was getting started my influences included Paul Kossoff, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Peter Green, Steve Gaines, Jerry Reed, Louie Shelton (studio musician). As I matured, I went through a jazz fusion phase and studied Al Di Meola, Scott Henderson, etc. I've had a tendency to go right to the source when I've wanted to learn. When I've been playing country, I've taken lessons with Will Ray (Hellecasters) and Johnny Hiland. I've also taken private lessons with Scott Henderson and done masterclasses with Oz Noy.
