ABOUT

I'm a professional musician/sideman in Minneapolis, MN . I play mainly guitar and mandolin but can play bass if needed. I'm equally at home on electric and acoustic, lead or rhythm and I enjoy playing slide guitar as well. I am ideally looking for an original project with an Americana or Blues aesthetic but am open to other genres. A professional working band would be great but more casual situations are welcome as well.

Please enjoy some of the demo recordings and don't hesitate to contact me if your interested in more details about them. I play most of the guitar and mandolin parts you hear. I don't sing. All the vocals are done by friends.
