ABOUT

I have retired from gigging, and work in the studio only. I have been a recording artist, engineer, and producer for 45 years, and a midi programmer for 38 years.
I own and operate a production studio.
I've been using Pro Tools for 20 years.
I have been in the top 5 artists in the Austin, in the funk category on Reverbnation for the last 9 years, usually ranked #1.
If you are a singer-songwriter in the funk, Smooth jazz and Smooth R&B genres, you should want me to produce you.
