For 50 years I’ve been performing as a singer, piano/organ player and guitarist but since March of 2020 I've concentrated on showing students everything I know via Zoom lessons, making new music in my home studio, and doing overdubs or mixing for others. 

I'm getting back to playing shows and recording with my band, with friends, as a solo act, and with award-winning songwriter and author, 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

2017 - Winner of “Best Solo Act" & "Best Solo Guitarist" at the Blues Foundation's International Blues Competition in Memphis

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
