MUSIC

Music has always been a part of my life.

My father was a professional musician who attended the Peabody conservatory and received a Masters degree in music from the University of Miami. And I spent much of my formative years in and around the music business, both the performing and musical instruments side.

After not taking to music as a child, I found my way to music and rock and roll when I was around 13 or 14.

I’ve been playing guitar ever since.

I’ve played in a few bands and acoustic duos over the years and even did a year at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

While I love rhythm guitar, I’ve played lead in every group I’ve ever been in. As a soloist, my primary influences are Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Ritchie Blackmore, EVH, and Hendrix/Stevie Ray. The next level of influences are too numerous to list but include Neil Young, Steve Vai, Al Di Meola, Carlos Santana, and Hetfield/Hammet.

Throughout it all, I’ve created original songs and music and have, if not a catalog, then a least a decent backlog of original material that has yet to be recorded. Part of this website is dedicated to recording and distributing those songs.

The musical piece of this adventure will likely be a slower burn than the fiction and filmmaking, but you will start to see some music released in 2021.
