ABOUT

A professional musician since I was 19, I believe in the power of music! I feel that with patience and overstanding, all people can find the Love that we need to go forward in Life. All of the good things in my Life are from the Most High God! The failures are mine. I know that there is forgiveness and redemption for all... As far as my music credentials are concerned, I have toured, recorded and played with a host of known reggae, blues and rock acts. My first tours were with a well known underground rock band called Euphoria BlimpWorks-Yama and the Karma Dusters, featuring Howard Berkman. Among the big acts in Jamaican reggae: Black Uhuru (grammy nomination), Andrew Tosh (grammy nomination), Wailing Souls, Dub Syndicate featuring drummer Style Scott, Prezident Brown, Dennis Brown, Eek-a-Mouse, Soul Syndicate featuring Fully Fullwood, Tony Chin and Santa Davis, Frankie Paul, Lee Perry, Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus, Ken Boothe, the Congos featuring Cedric Myton, Judy Mowatt, Sister Carol, Sister Nancy, Sister I-Live, Mikey Dread, Amlak Tafari, Tony Rebel, Tippa Irie, Sugar Minott, Johnny Osborne, Pinchers, Marcia Griffiths, Junior Marvin (Wailers guitarist), Winston Jarrett, Jah Big, Delroy Wilson, Prince Jazzbo, Hugh Mundell, Ras Midas, Yami Bolo, Norris Man, the great Hopi reggae singer Casper Lomayesva, Tony Tuff, Rankin' Joe, Foundation, Leroy Sibbles, Pat Kelly, Norris Man, Daweh Congo, and so many others that I can't remember! In blues: the late, great Charles Brown, Mississippi Delta Blues Band, L.C."Good Rockin'" Robinson, the Blues All-Stars, Harvey Mandel, Sonny Rhodes, J.J. Malone and many others. I also have produced Brazilian bands, Black Maria, Arma de Jah, and Makoto. In Denmark I was in a great band called Wild Remain with Denmark's greatest drummer, Soren Berlev. He was in Denmark's biggest band, Gasolin'! I was in a great mid seventies rock band called Peak featuring Greg Correa, Mark Correa and Alex Sarmiento! Oh, yeah, I also played in punk and heavy metal bands (the Liars later to be known as Sudden Fun, Killa Hz, Z City Dragons) in England, San Francisco and Canada!
