ABOUT

Pocket drummer with 30+ years live and studio experience in blues, soul, funk and rock. Over the years I have developed my style by playing in many bands, with many musicians (local and internationally known) as well as many different genres. My philosophy is that the song comes first whether its a cover song or an original piece.
My path has lead me to play around the country in my younger days and now venture into session work as well as sub work and being in a gigging band.
