Over the years I have grown to love every style of music, something quite surprising since in my young days I was focused on rock exclusively (Velvet Underground, Hendrix, Pretenders). Thankfully I’ve grown beyond just the one style and embrace pretty much everything now. Being a teacher has helped, being in countless bands as well. After graduating from The Guitar Insitute of Technology many years ago (sounds so sterile) and playing in scads of bands for a couple of decades, I ended up back in school at Cal State L.A. to work on a Jazz Studies degree. I was inspired by John Coltrane, my favorite musician of all time. I also love Thelonious, George Benson, Nancy Wilson… Occasionally I like to do a full night of nothing but standards either solo or with a small band. For booking info please contact me HERE.
