ABOUT

I love combining acoustic and electric guitars in a not too loud way. Electronic and synth elements welcome. I like full range music: deep bass to sparkles in the high end. I appreciate good sound quality. My interest right now is in backing up an excellent female vocalist who loves alternative folk, alternative country, rock 'n roll and Americana. My ideal set list would include interpretations of songs from my favorite songwriters. See influences.
