ABOUT

I am an experienced guitarist who has played rock / alternative country and blues for quite some time. But I am also quite eclectic in scope with interest in acoustic / celtic / world music / jazz and even some neo-punk.

I am currently seeking creative musicians to connect with - I play a fine lead and rhythm guitar / electric and acoustic - to jam play live and record.

I would be very glad to speak with you - whether you are an intermediate or very advanced musician or an existing band - good things often happen unexpectedly.

Influences

We all have many influences across the musical spectrum. I've always loved the Stones, they were my first exposure to the Blues and I love traditional country - like Merle and Emmy Lou - the two idioms can mix wonderfully. The intersection of country and blues is where rock and roll began.

Buddy Miller / Lucinda Williams / Pat Metheny / The Paul Butterfield Band with Mike Bloomfield Loreena McKennitt / Brian Eno / Emmy Lou Harris / Merle Haggard / Roy Nichols and so many other great country music Telecaster players / The Band / The music scene in Austin / The Yardbirds / Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers / The Rolling Stones / Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders and Eric Clapton are some significant influences but of course there are so many more.
