My father bought me a guitar when I was 15 and I haven't put it down since.

I'm a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Hamburg, PA. I write alternative-rock and psych folk. My lyrical styles include surreal story telling with elements of physics, space, and time as well as softer, more introspective, and sometimes funny observations of everyday life.

In the late 80's I formed the neo-psychedelic band The Paisley Gray. A full length cassette was released and the band performed in the South-Eastern Pennsylvania area. On New Years Eve in 1991, the band performed live on the Dr. Tom show at WFMU, East Orange, New Jersey.

I also released a solo project called Mood Swings in 1991. A collection of experimental music, noise, and ambience. The Bethlehem based MAPP magazine described it as "the most clever piece of original composition ever heard from an unsigned band".

I continue to write and record at home. In 2016 I released a 7 inch vinyl record of two songs, My Glass Head and Your Double Helix. The first in a series of vinyl releases.


In 2016 - Selected as a performer at Musikfest in Bethlehem as part of Godfrey Daniels Best of Open Mic series.

In 2017 - Featured artist at the Sherman Theatre in Stroudsburg.

In 2018 - Featured artist at Art Quest in Bethlehem.


Different, Fun, and Engaging.

I also cover songs from classics to contemporary.

There are many performing guitarist in the area. I try to find songs that different than commonly performed. I also play a variety of technical styles depending on the material, finger style, flat picking, or strumming.

I enjoy talking with the audience. I find it makes it even more enjoyable for both them and me.

Each Venue is Different

Over time I find that different places have different vibes. Some are listening rooms, some are more social.

Many really wish the musician was NOT SO LOUD! I have my own sound system and I strive to create a high-quality sound. High quality does not mean high volume.

Don't hesitate to let me know what you'd like in music.

Let's Build a Relationship

Between us and your customers

Based in Hamburg, I'm right on Route 78. My goal is to find some regularly scheduled work from Harrisburg to Easton, the Poconos to Lancaster, and points in between.

Ideally I'm interested in booking a venue once a quarter. I think this gives me a chance to be "fresh" each time and hopefully your customers will come see me again.

If you have a cancellation and are in need please contact me.
