Blues, Roots and good old R&B
with a dash of Rock & Roll

The songs I write, and that I perform by others, typically revolve around either themes of loss and redemption – or have what I hope is wry wit and clever wordplay. Yes, sometimes I take a slanted view of society.

The way I tell the stories that run through my songs has been influenced by my “past life” as a reporter and editor on newspapers. It was learning people’s stories and writing about them, bring out their humanity that was the best part of that career.

Most of my guitar playing revolves around the blues side of old school R&B along with a healthy dose of blues rock, but I also have a love for a good story in a song as well as contemporary instrumental acoustic guitar – so you’ll find examples of all those in my music.

I hope you enjoy what you hear. Thank you for visiting.

Solo, duo or full band performances.

From house concerts to festivals, I play a wide range of venues and events to bring my music to fans and future fans.
