Welcome to my website and my musical journey. I’ve been playing around with music since I was a kid and was really drawn to folk music early on, especially the work of the great singer-songwriters of the 60s and 70s. Decades later, I am still drawn to this style and sound. I enjoy playing acoustic music and writing my own songs, and also adding my own twist to some classics.
The recordings here represent some of the music I have worked on during the past few years, including both originals and covers. It’s been really fun playing multiple instruments on various tracks and coming up with my own version of a song. I usually record the rhythm guitar and vocal first, and then I add tracks for additional instruments. I play a Taylor acoustic guitar, a custom resonator guitar called a Dobrato which was developed by a local luthier in Gunnison, Colorado, named Kent Viles (Dobrato.com), some Dobro (still learning this), and harmonicas. (I did add a piano track on Thunder Road, which was fun, but I don’t really play piano.)
Music is just a hobby for me (there is no Grammy in my future), but I have played in small bands and played out some. I am currently focusing on solo work which I plan to feature here as I continue to develop the site. I have a small home/loft recording studio set-up and have a lot of fun recording my music and experimenting with multiple tracks and instruments. I’ll never be a rock star, but I am a legend in my loft. And music, like the Highlands, is a journey through history and time.
