Biography

I am an Arizona based Country Music and Variety “One Man Band” and "Guitarist / Vocalist" with more than thirty years in the music business. I am a career musician and I have spent most of my life playing lead guitar and singing in live bands. Currently I play with two different bands plus perform as a solo artist. I am also a session guitarist and have played on countless recordings for artists from all around the world. I also play bass guitar, banjo and drums.

What I Do

Basically, I'm a vocalist / guitarist. My main style of music (about 75 percent) is "Country" but I really enjoy throwing in some 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's rock and roll just to spice things up a bit.

Some of my clients hire me as just a guitarist (acoustic or electric) to play background music for their event. Some hire me to play my acoustic or electric guitar and sing and others prefer a more full sound and hire me as a one man band.

Over the years I've probably learned over a thousand songs. While I don't remember them all, I still remember around 300 or so and am always learning new ones.

For my "One Man Band" show, I create, arrange or edit all of my material to fit the way I perform and I play most of the lead guitar parts live. In Short, It sounds very much like a real band. The demos I have here were made with the same equipment I use on the gig.

Why Choose Me

With more than 30 years in the music business I have learned how to choose music for the different audiences I perform for. I have learned what they respond positively to and what they dislike. Most importantly, I've learned how to create a fun experience for my audience.

I am also a business man. Aside from being a musician, I also own and operate a recording studio and music school. While I fully understand that you can't please everyone all the time I also know the importance of giving your customers the products and service they expect.
