I grew up on a farm in the Midwest. Those were special times. Top 40 hits from WLS in Chicago radiated my brain early but I was saved by the live folk music my dad booked at the winery we ran. Finding real music and discovering punk and the sounds of alt-country filled in the rest. My music pulls from life as well as fiction. My sets include originals which tend to be more roots than rock and spans 50 years of music. I try to put my own personality and style into every song whether it's mine or someone else's. I'm thrilled to be able to share my music doing live shows throughout the community including donating performances to non-profit events whenever I can. My love of music is only surpassed by my love for my wife and family.
