ABOUT

Trop rock music and tropical balladeer. Island, reggae, rock, country, folk all mixed together and poured over ice in a coconut cup.
Committed, full-time musician and songwriter; working on my fifth full-length CD. Top 4 finisher in the 2009 Landshark Lager Battle of the Bands (the only solo musician in the finals); Honorable Mention in the American Songwriter Lyrics Contest in 2009. Top 10 in the 2011 Great Lakes Songwriting Contest.
I'm interested in putting together (or joining) a band for local and touring gigs.
