Short Bio

Guitarist, Singer-songwriter

“To reach the hearts core, soul to soul of the listener is my goal as an artist”. Having toured extensively with Nashville recording artists between (1992-2008) then a 180 degree turn to touring with the late legendary Father of JamBand “Col.Bruce Hampton” 2014/2015. After millions of miles I deeply feel I have arrived full circle to speak my own truths as a musician”.  Currently I am on tour as lead guitarist for legendary Southern Rock group the Outlaws and Nashville recording artist Blackhawk.

Born and raised in Hartland, Michigan a small town just North of Ann Arbor. A sixties child immersed within the music of Motown, Rock, Blues, Country and Jazz became enlightened by the music of the Allman Brothers which led to Miles Davis, John Coltrane, John Mclaughlin, Tony Rice, Pat Martino, etc, etc.

Currently I perform as a solo acoustic artist and with my band projects, the Infinite Line and the  Peace Merchants spreading my message as wide as I can on a world trajectory. 

“A deep underlying message of peace flows throughout my music”
