ABOUT

First began playing in the early 80's while serving in the military but deployments and the like kept me from really digging in. Marriage, family and business then took priority (as it should, in my opinion) A little over 10 years ago I made the decision to start playing again. I've played in garage bands, gigging bands our church worship band and enjoyed every minute of it. Found my niche in country music and have continued to explore it to date.
I do not claim to be a pro by any means. I am continuously learning and applying new things. I can however offer two abilities... reliability and dependability.

I am currently playing rhythm and lead (and some vocals) with WHISKEY DREAMS, based in Concord, CA. I have been with them for over two years now. However, I am also looking for others to play and collaborate with. Maybe it'll turn into something more than just jamming. You can reach me at thedevilscut.ca (at) (dot) com
