ABOUT

I'm a guitarist and a singer/songwriter. I play a bit of lap steel, mandolin, bass, keyboards & dabble on sitar. I've worked as a bandleader, band member, & a sideman, for many years, playing gigs, tourings & recording sessions. I'm always interested in doing new projects in a wide variety of musical styles.

I'd also like to find players for an improvisational, post psychedelic, groove heavy, experimental rock project. Influences include: Can, Neu!, Bitches Brew era, Miles Davis, Hot Rats era Zappa, Space Ritual era Hawkwind.
