ABOUT

I had my first 2 guitar lessons when l was 9 buy a junkie allentown PA who ended up steeling guitar and amp. But the one thing i picked up from him was open tuning bottle neck slide blues. He showed me what it was but it was already in me. I am now a singer songwriter and can play more instruments now. I have some gigs here and there at bars that just want to here bon jovi and sweet caroline or whatever is popular which is cool but im not into popular, dance, or the mainstream. I listen very seriously to lyrics and have a pretty good ear to learn songs with out tabs. My gigs are out in the streets where l know I wont be known till the night is over. I've play for the homeless scene in austin tx. san diego, nyc, jersey. I am not homeless, crazy, or on drugs. I just get my best audiences who listen to me on the fu*king streets. Also do studio work. I play in a band in Delaware as well playing garage rock. Its all great but I always want to start something new. Call me on my land line
