BandFolk

I write and play sixties-style accoustic guitar protest songs against lefties, neocons, and power-grabbers of all shapes and sizes.

Biography

Is it possible? Original, sixties-style protest songs - but with an unexpected twist? Yes, it's possible. I soaked it up when I was a kid, now it's flowing back out of me as if I'd been writing songs all of my life. Do you like songs with words you can decipher that actually mean something, for a change? Are you a freedom fighter at heart? If so, give me a try. You'll like what you hear.
