Why Hello there ... and Welcome! I am a instrumental acoustic guitarist. Somewhere a while back, I had a viral/bacterial infection that caused me to lose 1/2 of my voicebox. Since that time I have not been able to sing... my voice just won't do what I'd like for it to. So I became a finger picker...sort of avante guard style. All my music is original, recorded, produced, mastered and marketed by myself.
Band/artist history
35 yrs of playing in bands in college, after college and then into acoustic groups and finally solo. I lost my singing voice approx. 20 yrs ago and figured it was time to learn how to finger pick. Now I play only original, played on acoustic guitar, tunes using whatever is at my disposal to 'add' ...
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Local venues occasionally ... more of a listening venue than bar venues.
Your musical influences
Leo Kottke, Michael Hedges, Richard Crampton, and many other avante guard acoustic musicians. Led Zeppelin, Ali Farke Toure, Tangerine Dream... and a wide array of different kinds of music. I play acoustic or really, electroacoustic but listen to many genres.
