First started playing guitar in the late '60s. Earliest musical influences were country artists
including Hank Williams and Patsy Cline. Throughout the
'70s Rusty was involved in rock and roll cover bands,
and listened to all types of musical styles and genres including Classic Rock, Country, Jazz, Blues, R&B, Motown, Reggae, and Zydeco. For the past 15 years, I've continued to
perform with classic rock, blues, and contemporary
Christian bands, developing vocal and
arranging skills, while continuing to study, play, and
listen to a wide variety of music.
I've also done sound reinforcement for myself, other bands and festivals.
I also have experience with recording and music production.
