I'm an experienced, multi-instrumentalist (mostly stringed instruments) singer-songwriter who enjoys studio work as much as live gigs. While I prefer performing original material, covers are not out of the question if the situation demands it as either a solo artist or with a band. In addition to my writing and performing my own and others' songs, I have assisted in the production and arrangement of others' material in the studio. At present, I'm available as a solo artist, a "hired gun" for a band needing a fill-in, or as a potential full-time band member (if the chemistry is right for everyone). I'm almost always up for assisting others in the studio and/or jamming with other players live who are serious about their craft. My optimal genres include classic rock, old school hard rock/heavy metal, acoustic, acoustic-rock, old school progressive rock, blues, blues-rock, power pop punk, some modern rock, and limited southern rock. Folks who are more interested in age, appearance, or "image" than they are in someone with talent who is serious about his art will find me unsuitable for their needs. [+]
