ABOUT

I am a very experienced (former) tour musician with a long professional history that includes performing in front of thousands of people with nationally acclaimed recording artists The Boxtops, Bowzer of ShaNaNa, Billy J. Krammer, Bobby Lewis, Mark Lindsay, Gene Clark and Roger McGuinn.

I have also played with many regional/local bands in the Mid-Atlantic area. I'm currently playing with SpinOff. This is a very good band that I intend to stay with, but I am interested in performing with another band that is intending to play just part-time.

In addition to band work, I was also the house guitarist at Club 66 and a session musician at Midnight Engineering. I recently released a song with Cancer Can Rock that you can find on social media and streaming services.

I majored in music in both highschool and college and began my professional career as a local musician in several quality local bands at just 16 years old.

I am responsible at doing homework, learning songs quickly, and bringing a positive and professional attitude to all sessions. Hit me up if you're a serious musician.

Influences

Grew up on hardrock, then had an amazing high school music teacher that exposed me to jazz, funk and other types of music and inspired me to become a music major in college. (Theory and composition.)

I am NOT the guitarist that plays every Beatles and/or Led Zepplin song note-for-note. I'm will learn signature parts and add intereptations to a song to make the song fuller.
