Thanks for stoppin, good people. The Hudson Valley has been my home for more than 30 years and the musical and cultural influences of this area have helped shape who I am. History resonates deeply here; I've tried to listen to the rhythm of the mighty Hudson river to write songs which might also resonate and reflect upon these times we live in, yet contain some degree of timelessness, like the river itself.

     However, in these last few months of 2018, I've moved from this historically rich region to Upstate New York, specifically the Rochester area where I was born and raised. Luckily, Rochester and its environs harbor a rich musical tradition where I can continue to pursue my passion for blues and folk music. 

      In that regard, I hope to have some gigs on the calendar page for 2019 very soon.
