Artist Bio

Influences:   There are too many to list, however, the influences that get the credit/blame for propelling me into learning guitar and songwriting are Jackson Browne, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, The Eagles, Emmylou Harris. I also listened to a lot of British rock, blues, and jazz. I discovered Bruce Cockburn in the late nineties and his music really impacted me. Most recently I've been getting reacquainted with Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello and R.E.M. I've also been listening to Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile, and Jake Bugg quite a bit

I'm a native of the Cincinnati area. I've always loved and listened to an eclectic mix of music. Started playing guitar when I was in junior high school - used to play and sing with my older sisters. Started writing in High school. Was on again off again with playing and writing over the next 20 years. Play and write pretty steadily now.

    I don't think I ever jam with DH, but I might. Does he go by that? I do jam on occasion with Chris the Barber (up by Clermont Hospital.
