Bio

The most common interview question..."So, what were your musical influences?" 

I grew up listening to my dad play acoustic rockabilly style blues and adopted a bit of that style early on.  1970's rock had the biggest impact on me though.  Led Zeppelin, Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat, Eagles and all those 70's one hit wonders.  In my early 20's I discovered the Grateful Dead.  At the same time I explored bluegrass.  Old and in the Way was a record that I wore out.  More recent interests include Amos Lee, Ryan Adams, and Jack Johnson.

In 2008, I teamed up with singer / songwriter Todd Nickerson and formed the band 6 East.  We recorded and released two albums of original material, "Living the Dream" and "Rising".  We later added accomplished fiddle player, Katy Boc and delivered our blended style of Americana music to Boston south shore and Cape Cod area audiences.  Around  2014, I began to have the urge to pursue a solo record and began assembling some new songs.  Todd and Katy went on to form a roots duo called  Sparrow Blue (thesparrowblue.com).
