I have been playing guitar (popular rock, hard rock) since high school, and played with a few basement bands starting in 1992. I played both rhythm and lead guitar and sang background and a few lead parts with Step-In-Out from 2008 to 2011 (they relocated to Tennessee), and played similar roles (rhythm and lead guitar with background and occasional lead vocals) with Fur Pants from 2012 to 2015. I currently play bass with my church band every Sunday (they have enough guitarists).

The Only Exception
The Only ExceptionRecorded on 7/21/2017
1st of the year
1st of the yearMy New Year's resolution for 2017 was to write and record five original tunes. This is my first idea of the year. We'll see what it becomes.
Ain't No Sunshine
Ain't No SunshineBill Withers song with a driven guitar vibe.
Dark NecessitiesThree hours, two friends, Basil Hayden's, and our take on a Chili Peppers song.
If You Could Only See
If You Could Only SeeLove this old Tonic tune. Laid down all these tracks in an evening. Sometime I would love to go back and fix all of the places I screwed up, but for now it is what it is! By the way, I just started Invisalign orthodontics on the day I recorded this, and I recorded all vocals with my aligners in. If I sound goofy I'm blaming it on that...
Everybody KnowsMy version of Ryan Adams tune.
VolcanoVolcano with Gwen on vocal 2
VolcanoAlways loved Damien Rice's song, so I did in over for kicks.
Don't Need No Doctor
Don't Need No DoctorJohn Schofield and John Mayer did a great version of this Ray Charles tune, and I just wanted to see what I could do all by myself on a Sunday afternoon.
Waiting For The Prince
Waiting For The PrinceThis is a song I wrote in 1995 while waiting for the birth of my son, Allen.
