Songwriter, singer, and guitarist with Midwest roots currently living in Houston, TX. Raised in small town near St. Louis influenced by Ozark fiddle recordings of my great granddad, (a Missouri State Fiddling Champion in 1923 and 1925) Having these country roots, my early interests were to pick the guitar like Chet Atkins and Glen Campbell. Later vocal influences came from the Eagles, Styx, Foreigner, and REO Speedwagon classic rock. Robert Cray was another artist whose lyrics and songs caught my interest. To date I've released two albums and at age 59 hope the best is yet to come. I'm calling it my third act with the first being childhood and college, second being marriage, kids, and career, and third hopefully getting me back to my musical roots.
