ABOUT

And now for the "make me sound important" bio...

…as I recall from many moons ago I started writing music at the awkward age of 13 years. My parents bought me an electric guitar with the amplifier built in from Sears. I thought this was greatest thing because all you had to do was turn the volume up passed 5 and it would distort like a fuzz petal. Little did I know at the time that there was more to life than “fuzzy bits”! Soon the guitar became an extension of my emotions and to this day music has become my main release valve. I perpetually moved to the acoustic guitar, piano, keyboard, 12-string and finding my true voice on the nylon string. There is something about a nylon string guitar that makes you feel like a god when you play it. A mini orchestra at you finger tips!

I’ve written a countless number of tunes (along with a few commercial jingles) over the years. Probably half of them have been with my best friend and JacksonKalbfus (Anachronism) band mate Dan Kalbfus. Our collaborative efforts over the years have spawned many the imaginative passages with the rock musical “Opposing Viewpoints” being the crown jewel.

My inspiration is fraught from many genres; but primarily from progressive rock and classical music. I love music with meat on its bones; lush arrangement and imaginative orchestration are in my soul. Beethoven, Chopin, Rossini and Mozart can stimulate my mind any day, place them along the likes of Genesis, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Who, Yes and Rush, I’ll be in heaven.

Looking for some like minded musicians to write, record & play with on a casual basis for fun. I have a very eclectic work schedule, but would love to gig eventually a couple times a month.
