ABOUT

I am a hard working, but still easy going vocalist/guitarist. I'm comfortable playing both rhythm and lead guitar, acoustic or electric. I'm also a pretty decent bass player, but find singing a bit awkward while I'm doing it. With guitar, it actually makes it easier for me to sing. I'm open to ideas, and don't mind playing covers, but I'm not into the tribute band thing. I'd rather play a mix of well chosen covers. In the last 5-10 years I've really developed a taste for classic country and country rock. I'd like to do something that appeals to fans of classic country, but with a dash improvisation to appeal to "jam-band" fans. My ideal situation would be group that started with a bunch of covers, but moves into original material once things starts to gel.
