After recording five albums, I've been collaborating by writing and performing. I would love to expand material which could span alt-country, Americana and would like to find some folks to get an acoustic pop & punk.
I have strong vocals and am okay on harmonies (willing to continue learning). I have been playing acoustic guitar for 30+ years. I'm good on rhythm and have a tasteful finger picking style. I've played with many musicians while touring internationally in Asia and across the US.
I have put together a small collective of creative activists using performances for good causes. Face the Music has recruited 70+ social justice artists across the US & Canada, many with large national followings. Since launching we have raised over $50K for grassroots organizations and campaigns with over 50 live and online performances.
We are going to have a great time and do some good....

Acoustic amp with several mics
At Everett Middle School on June 11
It seems I'm moving from the city of Angels to that one by the Bay. I'll one last gig in L.A. at TRiP - on Thursday, February 23rd at 8:00pm
2101 Lincoln Blvd (just two blocks South of Pico) in the heart of Santa Monica, CA.
I'll be doing a 45 minutes solo acoustic set with some material I don't normally play. TRiP is a great venue for artists.
No cover and a cozy club. They have a great wine list, an eclectic cocktail menu and a pretty good menu of beers to boot.
Hope you can make it!
