ABOUT

I Love all types of music and I'm looking for any type of instrument or vocalist to play with.

I like the sound of Acoustic Instruments the most.

My style is really a mixture of lots of styles it's hard to classify my music.

It's a mixture of Folk/Acoustic/Rock/Jazz/Reggae/Tribal/World I've really been getting into World music and love Indian, African, and Indigenous music.

I'm very diverse in my sound and you can hear several different styles in my whole repertoire of songs.

I care alot about people and want to help the world to be a better place by influencing people through my lyrics. I seek Peace, Harmony, and Spirituality in my life. I'm looking for people who are drug free and are serious about music.

People tell me: I write like Bob Dylan Have complexity like the Beatles And sound Like Bob Seger and John Mellan Camp
