More than You Ever Wanted to Know.

After several years of criss-crossing the U.S. I found myself in Tucson, Arizona. That's where I started recording these songs.

At the age of 9 the viola was thrust in my hands. I thought, "hey, it looks like a guitar so it must be cool", wrong. I spent hours wailing on that viola like I was Ace Frehely, mother didn't approve. Fast-forward to high school...girls like guys who play guitar...so I did. I also realized they liked guys who play drums, bass, so I learned those too. Actually, I really enjoyed playing music. I was never the jock type and I lived out in the middle of nowhere (Central Oregon), so I would go out to the shed and crank er up.

College years were spent practicing guitar...I was going to be the next Steve Vai...that didn't
happen. I did start to record music on my brand new Fostex 4 track....those were fun times.
I studied music theory ad naseum, and found you play best when you close the books and
try to forget everyt
