ABOUT

I'm a singer/songwriter (see Songnificant.com for my music) and have written about 40 songs so far. My music tends to be folk/Americana maybe with a little Celtic tossed in. I have been praised as an excellent lyricist (I also write for a living).

I'm looking to form a duo for occasional gigs/concerts and possibly recording, since I've written several new songs that I'd like to record with a second guitar, percussion, etc. I work with Rob Genedek who is an amazing recording engineer as well as bass/drum player.
