Band/artist history
I was born, then I learned to play guitar. Then it was now. For the long version go to and hit "bio".
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I take it this is an oppotunity for me to look down on "bedroom bands"?! Actually some of the best songwriters i know dont play live they just write so there really is nothing to lookdown upon... If you would like to know where I'm next playing then please check the dates page of . All my dates for the mext couple of months are in the Maryland/NOVA area. If you do make it to a show then please jump me and say hi afterwards, its always great to meet new people!!
Your musical influences
I'm a big fan of Springsteen, and was brought up on large amounts of folk and classic rock, and then got really into 80s hard rock and everything in that direction... then into some of todays rock.. theres definatly some great songwriters about these days...
What equipment do you use?
Takamine acoustic, Shenandoah Amp, Shure mics.
Anything else?
"Be smart or lucky, If you can't break the mould break the rules" Show Of Hands - Be Lucky
