For 50 years I’ve been performing as a singer, piano player and guitarist. This last year I've been showing students everything I know via Zoom lessons, making new music in my home studio, and doing overdubs and mixing for others.
I'm getting back to playing shows and recording with my band, with friends, as a solo act, and with my songwriting, award-winning wife, Whit Hill. Please look around the site, check the calendar, get on the mailing list, listen to some music, maybe buy some too.
Some stuff I've done:
2018-2020 - Toured with country-rock royalty Carlene Carter.
2002-2018 - Music Director for multiple Grammy nominee Bettye Lavette.
2017 - Winner of “Best Solo Act" & "Best Solo Guitarist" at the Blues Foundation's International Blues Competition in Memphis.
2005 - Voted “Outstanding Blues Artist” at Detroit’s Motor City Music Awards.
2000-2003 - Band leader for Detroit blues legend Johnnie Bassett, also touring with Detroit’s Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams.
2000 - With my band the Love Butlers, won the “Best Unsigned Band” competition held at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago.
1998 - Released my debut recording “Willie Mae”.
