The other videos are self-produced covers with backing tracks. (When the Levee Breaks - Led Zep; Sara -Fleetwood Mac; American Idiot - Green Day; Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones)

Singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, producer. Have formed 4 bands and played gigs in L.A. Have sold original song for a feature film. Have over 100 songs in my repertoire. Am also an award winning visual artist, an author, photographer and video maker. Text or call 310-710-7962. Feel free to contact me with any projects. I'm open for collaborations.
