ABOUT

I am a singer, guitarist and bass player. I am a musician, writer and all around geek. I enjoy and listen to all types of music, and I have been playing music for more than 30 years. I have been in many bands over the years and we have played everything from Rock and Blues to Punk and Reggae. I've had the good fortune to share the stage with some artists that are some of the greats in their genre like Buddy Guy, W.C. Clark, Wet Willie and more. In all I have played big shows, little shows, radio shows and no shows. Nowadays, I am focusing on more of the rock, blues and metal styling that I enjoy.
