The music you will hear here is just guitar jams I have thrown up with no real thought going into it. I am not trying to write hit songs here and I am not trying to get any sort of a deal.The music I post here is for enjoyment puposes.... mine in recording and playing it, and hopefully for someone listening to it. These tracks were created in my home studio.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Not at the moment although I would like to hit it again. I have at some point played almost every club in Los Angeles. Some of the names are: FM Station, Club 88, Madame Wong's, The Palamino, The Central/ Viper Room, Club Lingerie, The Whiskey, Coconut Teaser, Club 88, The Music Machine, Raji's, Mancini's, The China Club, Bourbon Square, The Classroom, Cozy's, Boardners in back, outdoors at The Cat and Fiddle etc etc many now gone, lot's of fly by nights I can't remember the names of and spent a fair amount of time on the road plus quite a few years overseas. They were all special moments in more ways then one!

I would love to lay down guitar parts for your project or collaborate with you, in your studio ( Los Angeles area ) or mine. I have worked in the studio's in LA extensively and also worked with songwriters like Danny Tate and Cal Curtis including songs that were picked up by .38 Special and Jeff Healey and worked with Astrid Plane-Animotion and Peter Beckett-Little River Band. I am comfortable with a wide variety of styles and will bring a great attitude with me. I will also consider a sideman position for the right project.
