Vocalist - Soprano, Rhythm Guitar, Violin, Vocalist - Alto.

ABOUT

I'm mainly a guitar player (although I play other instruments) with some moderate major label credits back in the '80s--played with some cool people in all genres in NYC, back to Maine in '89, have played steadily in various cover bands, recently Under the Covers. I'm looking to collaborate with others on an original music project, as I both write and record original music. Little Feat meets Jeff Buckley meets Zep, Wilco, Widespread Panic-- looking for an Americana/Jazz/Blues/R&B/Roots mishmash with emphases on both excellent tune smithing and live performance. Looking for a real collaboration and partnership in all aspects.
