I’m a guitarist and bassist, originally from the Ohio/West Virginia area. Most of the last 25 years I’ve been in Minneapolis playing all styles on both instruments. I was in Portland, OR in 2008-’09 where I’ve recorded 3 CDs with fellow guitarist Mike Doolin. Our newest CD is ‘Dark Star‘ (2016). My newest CD is ‘Play On‘ (2019) with vocalist Vicky Mountain. I recently received a 2020 Artist Rescue Trust Grant, a 2020 and 2021 Twin Cities Music Community Trust Grant, a 2020 Springboard for the Arts Grant, and a 2020 Working Partnerships USA Grant.
Locally, I play in Salsa del Soul, DAT Trio, The Bill Simenson Orchestra, Minneapolis Jazz Guitar Duo and accompany many vocalists around town such as Maryann Sullivan, and Vicky Mountain. I also do a variety of music at several churches in the Twin Cities area.
New, original music recording coming in 2023!
