ABOUT

Self taught Blues/Rock based guitarist/song writer. Always play from my soul. Unique style. Not really into playing covers too much, although I do some, I love to write original material. Not really a singer, but I like to sing. All songs are protected originals. I have a lot more songs than I put here, just wanted to mix in the different types of songs I write and my writing style. I record on a free 4-track app so they may sound a little grainy. All me here lyrics, vocals, and guitar. I’m really a guitar player who likes to write songs. Always write from my blood sweat and tears as well as my soul. The guitar is my life. All of the influences below are my teachers. Enjoy my songs and if you don’t, I don’t give a fu*k, they’re me. I mostly play for myself these days. It’s ok, I just love to play my guitar. I can play from the time the sun goes up til it goes down, and I have for many years. I’m writing songs all the time. Like to write what I would listen to. I’ve only put a profile on here because my little dog thinks I’m good, my biggest fan, haha. No, she really is.
