ABOUT

A few originals and some covers. Two videos of me playing live with my band FearlesSpirit over fifteen years ago. The other videos are self-produced last year with backing tracks. (When the Levee Breaks - Led Zep; Sara -Fleetwood Mac; New York, New York - Sinatra)

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. Right now, I want to get a blues/classic rock band or duo that can play gigs and make some money. The pandemic is going away. I want to be ready to hit the road running.
