I'm a professional rock, blues, jazz, and country guitar player. I play for the legendary Country artist, Ronnie McDowell. He is a Curb Records recording artist, has had two #1 singles, another 8 or so in the top 10, and over 30 songs in the top 40. He has released more than 40 albums, and has sang with Conway Twitty and many others. I recently did a show with him that included performing with Bill Medley (of the Righteous Brothers), and several shows that included performing with Curb recording artist Tyler Dean.
I also play for a great Nashville singer, J.C. Andersen, who's music video "When the Tide Rolls In" is airing nationally on the GAC network. JC was part of a new reality show called "The Next GAC Star", and he has received a lot of national attention from it. We recently performed at the after-party of the season finale of the national television show "Can You Duet", and we have opened for many major acts, including: Aaron Tippin, Rodney Atkins (who has had five consecutive #1 singles), Collin Raye, Loverboy, and the legendary country band "Little Texas". We've also performed shows with Sierra Hull and Grammy Award winner Ron Block (of Alison Krauss's band "Union Station"), the Grammy Nominated artist David Ball, Adam Gregory, Ira Dean (from Trick Pony), the great songwriter Jeffrey Steele, and Cowboy Troy. We are the new house band for the world-famous Wildhorse Saloon (beating over 800 other bands that applied and auditioned for the gig) in Nashville, TN. We've also toured throughout much of the southeastern United States.
I recently did a few shows with Angel Miles (led by Justin Kimball, who was mentored by Prince, and has toured with Pat Benatar), and one of those shows included performing with Dave Thomson (who co-wrote the hit song "California" when he played in the band "Wave").
I've also performed with a Scottish singer/fiddle player named Laura McGhee. She has performed for the inauguration of Scotland's new Prime Minister, arranged strings for Ian McCulloch (Echo and the Bunnymen), played for Shane McGowan (The Pogues), and performed in a broadway musical starring Pete Seeger.
In the fall of 2007 I finished a tour with country singer/Nashville recording artist Justin Cruz. We had the privilege of performing on television and did a show with Noel Haggard (son of Merle Haggard) and Country Hall-of-Famer Billy Cates. I've also performed with a bunch of rock/pop bands in the Southwest.
I've been recorded on nine independent albums and EP's (not including plenty of other recording sessions) and produced a song called "The Silent" which received airplay on 940 KGMS and was used in a promotional video for a small clothing line. I have done several television performances and have played over 1,500 live shows.
