I was influenced by the whole 1960's musical scene. I enjoy most music. I bill myself as a folk singer but I really play Americana music. It's a mix of folk, popular, rock and jazz music.
I've made a couple of videos for youtube so people who are interested in booking me can check me out. I think it works better than recording a demo CD.
These days I'm most influenced by fingerstyle guitarists like Mark Hanson, Tommy Emmanuel, John Standefer and of course Chet Atkins.
That's a quick bio of me, I hope you enjoy my music!
I've performed a few times on the street. It was fun but not something I'm going to do a lot. I prefer playing through an amplifier and I don't want to buy a battery powered unit.
I've had a lot of guitars. I generally trade the old one in for a new one. I currently have a 1974 Les Paul Deluxe that I bought new and will probably never sell. It's kind of my Excalibur. I also have a 2015 Fender Starcaster, a Takamene acoustic and a Martin acoustic which has become my main axe. I use a Fishman amp. They are great amps for acoustic guitars and vocals. And they're perfect for small venues. I've never been one to name my guitars, cars, or houses.
“You made my heart sing.”
“Thanks for playing my song.”
