ABOUT

I write and record my own music, and have 3 records completed and am "working" on 2 more, although I rarely get to these days. Stylistically it jumps around a bit, from fuzzed out hard rock to piano pop, but I'm probably most comfortable within the Americana genre. I can't say I'm really looking for a band to join or people to join me, but just thought I'd make a profile and see if anything worthwhile comes along. I'm not interested in playing covers or bars. I did a fair amount of touring in the late '90s/early '00s.

Influences

My favorite decade of music would be 1967 - 1976. That includes most genres from the time period. I enjoy '90s era music as well; that's when I graduated from high school.
