I've released three albums; Wasist (2004),
Carpet Scrapings from Saturn's Viewing Room (2005), and Vesper (2007).



I've grown up traveling all over the USA and Canada, either by car or foot. I've slept in a lot of ditches along highways, listening to the sounds of the road. In those times I've met a lot of great people. I bring them into my songwriting. Sometimes when I sing about them I feel their spirits take over in the telling. As far as musical influences I've listened to a lot of Ali Farka Toure, Neil Young, Ravi Shankar, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Mississippi John Hurt. I put them all in a juicer, blended and drank. The blues influences came pouring out in my singing, and in my guitar they set the framework for most of the altered tuning styles I use. When I perform I take those tunings, mixed with a cup of coffee, attack my guitar strings and let the music take over.
