  • Performer

I am a solo performer. I play acoustic and electric guitar with a multi-effects pedal for som augmentation. I like the acoustic sound but, for variety I'm seeking ways to incorporate a little of a crunch, electric sound in my playing; but in a way that it doesn't sound out of place, My strongest and most nuanced instrument is my voice.

I lived 30 years in Col. OH. I fronted and mixed sound for bands there in the mid-70's.
I've lived in Phoenix AZ for that last 30. I did a lot of stage and commercial acting in Phoenix for about 20 years. Right now, I'm focusing on solo performing--singing and playing.

I play the following guitars: Biran Moore i2P hybrid electric; Ovation VXT hybrid electric; Composite Acoustic all carbon fiber acoustic electrics with either L.R. Bagss or Fishman electronic: CA X Raw, CA X HG, CA X Player, CA OX HG Custom, Blackbird Super OM, and a Martin HD35 9D. I also use a Boss ME-70 multi-effects pedal For PA equipment I have a Fishman Solo; a Fishman Loudbox mini, a KRK studio subwoofer (the subwoofer makes all the difference in the world), and a Behringer Xynx X1222 USB mixer
