Feeling a bit camera shy


I was born and raised in Chicago. I first gave a go at piano when I was around seven but the bug didn't get me then. It was around 12 when my older cousin suggested I listen to Black Sabbath. It was Heaven and Hell the outro solo. It hit me like a flash of electricity. I was like, "I've got to play guitar".

That was it. I was locked in a room with my friends for years. Friends like Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and all the stuff that blows your hair back. Then, being in the home of the blues, I started hanging out at blues clubs where the coolest of the cool were tearing their guitars to pieces. So I started hanging out with their friends like Albert King, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Buddy Guy and all sorts of shady characters. Well, as the journey got even wider and longer, I started singing and writing songs. So I got turned on to all kinds of singer / songwriting maniacs and started hanging out with the Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Van Morrison, the list goes on and on (if you love music like I do, you so know what I mean).

I make fun, happy, sad, loud, soft, deep, wild, mellow, awesome rock and roll music. People love my live show because I'm not afraid to entertain or connect everyone and search for that communal musical nirvana.

I've played all over the United States of America and Canada. I've endorsed Washburn guitars (doing guitar clinics for them all over the south of our country) and La Bella strings. I've recorded a very cool instrumental record with my friends Greg and James (the rhythm section for White Lion/Zakk Wylde) which had a video-made-commercial for Washburn guitars that aired internationally on MTV. I've sat in a hotel room with Gene Simmons of Kiss (when I was just out of high school) while he said I was the right man for his band House of Lords and that I am a STAR. You can imagine how you feel if the star of stars is telling you that and you're still a young punk! I've worked with Arista records under Randy Gerston on a cool project that Randy and Cal Curtis were putting together.

After all this I decided to put my own band together, DRAGON, made a cd and sold it through Perris records and the internet. We toured and made music for 3 years with explosive live performances. That cd still rocks cd players all over the world.

Now I've put all my experiences into my new vision: ADRIAN. Adrian is the culmination of one wild journey. It is electrifying audiences all over L.A.. This new journey is what the people have been waiting to hear and see. Homegrown rock and roll music with no boundaries. Something for everyone. Music Moves Soul............
