ABOUT

I'm up for jam or writing sessions with a bend toward growing/melding - open to greater aspirations with the right mix. I played on a Tama kick-set with in a 3 piece speed metal band in my middle/late teens (80's & 90's), and a classic rock cover band in my early 30's. I've play the Texas Opry circuit solo singer with a house band backer belting our Country hits and rockabilly and southern rock at biker bars. I also played open air benefit venues and smaller intimate get-togethers. I'm just a music addict looking to score another fix.

Influences

From the Eagles, Zeppelin, Doors, Hendrix era into the Journey, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner age. Launching into AC/DC, Judas Priest, RJDio, which lead to Metalica, Megadeth, Slayer and eventually Suicidal Tendencies, Sepultura, and eventually to funkadelic sounds of Red Hot Chili Peppers - as a kid and a drummer. But, the old Country & Western edge from my parents has always been there ... caught up in my vocal chords and my pen - from David Allan Coe, Willie & Waylon, Johnny Cash, Charlie Pride, Bocephus which lead to George Jones, George Strait, Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Joe Diffie - and now resides somewhere in the middle of all of that. My writing style tends to swing heavily toward the country side from the middle 90's to modern hits.

EQUIPMENT

Currently traveling light with an acoustic Fender Dreadnought and my pipes.
