I am a guitarist/songwriter who tries to sing with all that’s in me. I believe in the purity of good music and I respect the artists that have truly mastered their genre like Johnny Cash, Joe Pass, Metallica, Prince, Brent Mason, Joe Satriani, SRV, and Disturbed. Regardless of genre, good music is just good music. It is not enough for me to just be a good player I have a desire to be great. I believe if I want to be the best as a player, performer, artist, or songwriter I can then I should be around people that are better than me in some aspect. Surrounding me with people who make me want to step up my play instead of sit down on stage is something I strongly desire. I believe in personal drive as opposed to the hitch a ride. If you are looking for someone who is not afraid to take the responsibility and time it takes to develop and produce great music I am your last stop. I think talent is overrated! 10,000 hours of practice makes virtuosos not talent. Hard work is what it takes to be a professional in anything and my work ethic is steel! I have band leader experience in multiple situations. There is plenty I don’t know but I am very teachable and recognize opportunities to grow. I have chops for days because I am a melody oriented player.
Do you need a guitarist or singer for your show? I do both! I got enough good old crowd pleasing country to sing a shift downtown or a little over a thousand songs from all genres, including:
