There is a type of music that defies categorizing. I am making it a life long hope to achieve that sort of distinction. For the time being one could say I play originals and arrangements rooted heavily in traditional American music forms like; Gospel, Blues, and Folk. I hope it is enjoyable for you.
I have been playing my own music in public since the Summer of 2001.
On occasion. Around Portland, sometimes in Cleveland, Soon California. I have not enjoyed playing out recently but I want that to change. Playing at the Aladdin Theatre and Opening for Kelly Joe Phelps at the Beachland Tavern come to mind as special
