ABOUT

Currently heading up a group inspired by gypsy jazz, Latin, and eastern European folk. We play mostly instrumental music with limited vocals. Still looking to stay mostly acoustic with a Gypsy feel, but injecting rock, some bluegrass, and contemporary sounds. My full time gig is a professional guitar instructor, so my playing and understanding is diverse.

Influences

I grew up playing mostly rock and blues, but in recent years I've studied intensely and have been playing Gypsy Jazz. I love the nostalgia and the romanticism of the music, but I'm a rock and roll kid at heart! Looking to blend my primary influences: Django Reinhardt, Robin Nolan, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Alain Johannes, Jimmy Page, Jack White.
