I'm a multi-instrumentalist and a composer. I enjoy playing and writing in many styles: celtic, ambient, jazz/rock, and new age (mostly piano). Some pieces are composed or arranged, others are improvised. All my recordings are quick and rough demos, so please excuse the rough edges. I've ordered the tunes by genre: 1) Celtic 2) Ambient 3) Jazz
Band/artist history
After playing in various rock, country, and Irish bands for over 20 years, I've returned to my roots and started writing and recording at home. I'm a multi-instrumentalist - guitar, lap steel, keyboards, drums, penny whistle, and violin. At one time or another I've also played viola, mandolin, Irish button accordion, concertina, uilleann pipes, and pedal steel guitar.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Not much anymore, but that's OK with me. I'd rather "work in the studio" anyway. I recorded some penny whistle tracks for a few years ago. I had quit playing and they pulled me out of "retirement."
