I have been writing and performing music for the past 20+ years in the pop-rock genre. Growing up, gospel and country played significant, influential roles as well. I also have a jazz performance degree with emphasis on the alto sax and piano.
From 1987 to 1997, my band judge nothing toured the country with the likes of Uncle Tupelo, Joan Jett, Fugazi, the Descendents, ALL, Blue Meanies, Smoking Popes, Green Day, etc., releasing various d.i.y. records independently, including many compilations, and two records through the Chicago label, THICK records.
I'm currently in Chicago and still writing independently and with the band PETLOVER,
looking for more opportunities to broaden my options and skills as a songwriter.
