Band/artist history
I sang and played guitar for Tribute (starting when I was 14... my career has gone backwards, as this was my only band--so far--to receive commercial--not just college--radio play), Sofie Tucker, and Little Hand of the City... Now a solo artist, releasing a new album in 11/06.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I am trying to get to where I can play everywhere and play music for a living. Every time people come out to see me and seem to know my songs is a special moment. Sometimes I hear my music and say, "That's pretty good", but I guess I generally don't think about it, and then I'm really surprised when people are enthusiastic about it. I write from the heart and hope other people can relate to my words and melodies.
Your musical influences
Beatles, Bob Dylan, Rufus Wainwright, Sondre Lerche, Elliot Smith. That pretty much gives me away.
What equipment do you use?
A 1950's Wurlitzer electric piano (heavy, and only one tone, but I love it, and it's one of my main current instruments), a 1968 Yamaha acoustic (back when they made good instruments, in my opinion). I play most instruments through a 80 watt Twin Reverb w/ 2 X 12" speakers.
Anything else?
Hope you like my music, and more importantly, I hope you write me when and if you do like my music. And join my mailing list! I'll prolly be playing your town soon. :)
