"Your 'Shepherd' CD feeds my soul with divine energies. your arrangements bring in vibrant, fresh, energized interpretations. For the first week I owned the CD, I played it almost nonstop. I could not get too much of it! and I still can't."


You know me. You have heard me featured on NPR shows several times if you listen to shows like Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" or Dave Brubeck's music in "A Welcome Home Christmas". I have contributed articles in several international music publications including Guitar Player Magazine. I'm a graduate of Berklee College of Music and was awarded the first ever "Ovation" Award, presented by Bill Leavitt and Gary Burton. I studied with John LaPorta, Lenny Breau, and currently with Charlie Banacos. I have won songwriting awards from BMI and ASCAP. You may have seen me playing in a theater, an outdoor concert or a stadium. You may have heard my music on Television or radio. My "A Classic Guitar Christmas" has sold well all over the world. Check out "Shepherd", my latest release on "Watchfire" records. I will be in New York recording an album in September. I recently orchestrated a Broadway musical about the OK Corral called "Sundown". I have lots of new music for you to listen to. Some of the people I've played with are: James Taylor Garrison Keillor Mark O'Connor Richie Havens Gillian Welch Greg Leisz Rhonda Vincent and the Rage Mollie O'Brien Robin and Linda Williams Peter Ostroushko Trini Lopez Del Shannon The Shirelles Bo Diddley Maurice Starr Martha Reeves Matt Glaser Susan Tedeschi Dave Dudley Dick Curless Faron Young Ferlin Husky Fabian The Crystals Mike Ried Livingston Taylor Sam Harris The Tokens Bill Carlson The Drifters TH and the Wreckage Leslie Gore Little Anthony The Diamonds Pee Wee King The Shangralas Kate Taylor The Coasters The Marvelettes The Platters Toy Caldwell Sammy Kreason Gary Pucket Dave Mallet Big Al Downing Billy J. Kramer Charro Ray Flacke Sleepy LaBeef Hal Crook Walter Beasley Dave Rawlings Louis Nicole Rev. Lee Mitchell Billy Davis Billy D. Hunter Darrell Scott Donny Osmond Tommy Roe Brian Highland Boogaloo Swamis Frankie Ford Gary U.S. Bonds Eugene Pitt Box Car Willie Abe Laboriel Jr Anthony Cox Hal Blaine Charlie Daniels Noel Redding Maureen McGovern Tony Grey blah blah blah and on and on. If you can name all the people you've played with you haven't played with many people.
