Band to Join.

ABOUT

I have played guitar since the age of six, with the primary catalyst being the 1964 performance by The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Over the years I have played several styles of music, but I most enjoy playing and recording guitar driven rock and blues. I have written several of my own compositions, and perform them on both electric and acoustic guitar. I also have solid experience as a studio musician and recording engineer in a professional production studio. The musical accomplishments I am most proud of are my contributions to Steven Springer's, "Caribbean Collection" (released on the Schoolkids Label), producer and engineer credits on Tom Hodgson's two popular children's music releases, and two guest appearances with my former band, The Quivers on Mitch Albom’s nationally syndicated radio program.
