Artist Bio

Influences:   John Prine, Hank Williams, Jesse Winchester, Steve Earle, etc., etc.

My first year as a Fawmer. I'm really excited to take on the challenge.

I am a multi-instrumentalist: violin/fiddle, viola, mandolin, mandola, banjo, guitar and bass. I started writing songs a long while ago and have written for a lot of years. I currently live in Kenosha, WI, but am originally from the Milwaukee area. I have also lived in the Twin Cities (28 yrs) and Washington DC area (2 yrs).

I've played in Old Time/String bands, Bluegrass, Rock, and Americana bands over the years, besides Singer-Songwriter venues. I miss getting together with fellow musicians and look forward to those days again. Most recently I've enjoyed playing with my wife, Kristin Kornkven... who has done her best to keep me sane.

    Thanks so much, @bobjestes ! My Heart Skips A Beat was a lot of work, but I’m a bit crazy, so...😂

    Thanks, Bob, for your consoling comment. My brother in law did pass away, but the family was lovingly connected, and it's okay.

    Thanks for your comment on Memories Change. I thought about the millennia whoop in there for comic effect but I'm not sure that would work.

    Thanks, Bob, you rock. And I just noticed you're a Wisconsinite too! I'm in Madison.
