ABOUT

Pocket player. I've played a variety of musical styles from Rock to Blues (urban & country) to R&B to Country to Roots to Originals and most everything in between.

I am would like to join or start a Blues / Roots project with a lot of Muscle Shoals and Stax R&B thrown in for good measure.... if you're a vocalist,, a harp player, a slide/finger style guitarist, a horn blower / multi-instrumentalist, an in-the-pocket groove drummer and you're looking for a bassist, I could be your man.
