ABOUT

I’m a tenured, multi-instrumentalist and grew up playing piano / organ. Over the years, however, I have been focused mainly on guitar, mandolin and lap steel guitar (influenced by Ron Wood / John Paul Jones). Most bands lately, though, need help with keyboards, so back to my roots, I'm currently playing keyboards in a Rock Cover Band (70's - 80's - 90's) - covering everything from MUSE to Joe Cocker. I’m pretty busy in my professional life, but have always made time for band practices and local shows. I can hold a tune for backing vocals and harmonies too - but wouldn’t consider me as a front / lead vocalist. Happy to write new / or play covers. Just like playing - no drama!
