A Multi-Instrumental Studio Owner adept at all Genre and although I list as a studio performer I bring the feel of Live performance to the sound captured. Expertise involves solo guitar playing in Electric and fingerstyle acoustic alternate tunings, playing in the style of Chicago Electric Blues and Alex deGrassi respectively.
Well versed on several Instruments, predominantly Guitar, then Korg Trinity Pro V3 workstation, Bass, Blues Harp, and Violin. I feel right at home on the opposite side of mix console, Arranging, Songwriting and look forward to an oportunity to get involved in film scoring. I have completed CD projects available online at CD Baby and through most digital download sites like Napster, iAppletunes, Sony connect, Rhapsody etc.if you want to buy by the song or album.

Anyone into textures and emotion stirring Ideas.
My Brothers, SRV, Eric Clapton, Ed Gerhard, Alex deGrassi, Kitaro, My Daughter, My Wife.
Since early childhood I have always felt most at home in musicmaking and entertaining. Be it Five Years of age and crooning neighborhood girls with Elvis gyrations to James Brown at tender age of Nine. I still remember getting my first 45 RPM recording of The Thrill is Gone/BB King and wearing it out.
By early Teens I Played in so many bands I can't keep count (although my favorite was the SwampWater Blues Band W/ Bob Zarrella,Dave Grandmont and Paul Delahanty).
Just a young man I get picked up by Luther "Snakeboy" Johnson and the ride gets wild. I'm on a national tour and sharing stage with everyone I grew up listening to. This was the best learning period for me and I continued it with USO Shows in the USAF. Session music studies with Mike Ihde of Berklee School of Music fame. Workshops with Alex deGrassi, a chance meeting and short study with Flamenco Guitarist Jonathan "Juanito" Pascual.
I learn constantly from my own teaching and seeing how students respond to my ideas (it seems to act like a reverberation for me where I see what's most effective) and ride it like hangin ten on the big Kahuna.
Right now I feel the best place for me is to write as much as I can and try to pass the torch along in the relay race of sound and providing music enjoyment to all I meet.
Still an oven1
To this day I play every note like it's the one that will grab the attention of the audience. I love to play to the crowd and get the feedback from the listeners. Whether I'm in the studio or on the stage, it is all meant to evoke a feeling in someone out there that will make for a memorable moment.
PRESS RELEASE FOR JOURNEYS
JOURNEYS ON THE IVORY KEYS FOR RELAXING AND AWAKENING CHI IS GETTING GREAT REVIEWS!!
Multiple Top Tens from two cuts
I'm excited by the reviews and the Top Ten listings that are happening for song titles "Two Towers" and "Seascape". Both cuts are featured on my album "Journeys on the Ivory Keys for Relaxing and Awakening Chi".
Two Towers has been in the Top 10 list on six different occasions and in five different categories. Some of the reviewers stated they could have listened to another ten minutes if I extended it, it was so nice. I watched the reviews of Seascape follow in the tracks of Two Towers and sure enough I knew it was also heading to the top 10 and yes it has made it three times. If you like New Age Meditative music this album will surely please the ears. Nice photos too.
"Blues Listeners and fans throughout the audience rose in their seats like bread being baked in a microwave oven set on maximum" review from circa 1978 USAF Journal
