Instrumental Rock Guitarist. Technical prowess meets soulful feel.
Swamp Leather has finally dropped!! Check it out now in Instrumental Rock. You just stumbled onto the greatest rock guitarist you never heard of. All tracks here (unless otherwise noted) are composed, recorded, and performed (all instruments) by me.
Band/artist history
Started playing at 12, gigging at 16, studied music in college. Hired for studio sessions and clinics. Several bands along the way. Write and record in my very modest home studio.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Extensively. Before moving to MA, I was in a regular gigging prog rock band in Pittsburgh PA. In and out of bands in MA.
Your musical influences
Love the guitar gods, Joe Satriani (Satch), Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson, George Lynch, Nuno Bettencourt, Dream Theater (Petrucci), Porcupine Tree, Rush...Progressive Rock, and just good playing from any genre.
What equipment do you use?
Ibanez, ESP, and Alvarez-Yari guitars, Marshall Amps, a jar of peanut butter, a flat head screwdriver, random DAWs, several IPAs, Audacity, a plethora of boxes and random effects, a few monkeys, several neat scotches, a coffee maker, my neighbor's pool filter, and a few secret weapons. Lately I have a very healthy love affair with the Ampero.
Anything else?
I'm grateful that you stopped by to give some things a listen! Drop me a note form some feedback or comments. Thanks for checking it out! Some other sites that I started a while back and no longer maintain...but for posterity:
