Still working on that hot first release.



I was born in Bangor, Maine in 1966. I met a professional singer songwriter working in Bar Harbor, Maine one summer when I was a teenager. We formed a duo and traveled to Durham, North Carolina, where I worked on my songwriting and got involved with the local blues and roots music scene. I played guitar with North Carolina Piedmont bluesman Big Boy Henry and other area blues performers. I formed a band, Yellen Horsley, with a washtub bass player/harmonica player and washboard player. Since 1989, we have been playing a mixture of my originals, blues, and old timey music in clubs around Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have recorded two CDs of originals in my home studio.

I am working on a third CD with my wife Elizabeth. She is a writer and marketing consultant in the graphic design and writing business that we started ten years ago. She also writes fiction and sings on a few of our new songs.
