ABOUT

I've been playing music for 28 years and I'm well-versed in many different styles. Currently I'm working on a rocked-up blues project which I am currently putting together. I am a very experienced songwriter, so I prefer to play original music for my main project. I am also interested in playing in a country and/or rock band. For those bands, I am open to either covers or originals, though I strongly prefer originals. I love melody and I love dynamics. A song should flow.

Influences

I'm all over the board. For rock, I like everything from GN'R and Ozzy to Five Finger Death Punch and Imagine Dragons. I like anything that rocks. For country, I like the newer stuff the best--Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert, though I do love the laid back old-school sound of Chris Stapleton. For blues, I like it all: Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Kenny Wayne, Z.Z. Top, Stevie, Joe Bonamassa and everything in between. I prefer melody over theatrics.

EQUIPMENT

I play Les Paul through Marshall, though I'm debating on going to the Helix and switching to straight modeling. I have a full pedal board and can upgrade to anything that would be necessary. I also have a small practice p.a. system: 12 channel Yamaha board, Peavy speakers, mics, etc.
