ABOUT

Experienced Philly region musician seeking projects and bands for collaborations, gigs, recording, and general musical hijinks. My ideal would be to join an existing tight local band that uses a mixture of acoustic and electric instrumentation, heavy on original music. I am a songwriter with my own repertoire to contribute, but I am also happy as a sideman on dobro or guitar. I enjoy singing harmonies as well as lead vocals. I play dobro, guitar, mandolin, and harmonica, and sing.
