ABOUT

Im a guitarist/singer currently working with Redline and my duo Retro and I’m quite content with that, but would be interested meeting other musicians to jam with. I would be especially interested in improvisational music, which I don’t do that much of on either gig I have. My roots are in rock and blues with a pretty decent amount of jazz and classical thrown in as well. If interested, please either contact me here or, or meet me at one of my gigs listed here on my calendar below, I'd be happy to talk with you. Keep playing and best of luck.

Regarding my music samples here: all the live tracks are from Redline, the others I recorded from my PC. The "Crossroads" vid is from a previous band about 9 yrs ago and "Bodhissatva" was recently done in my music room.
