(live performing & studio recording)
An Acoustic/Electric Guitarist/Ukulele Player for over 3 decades, I currently perform solo for private events. Every once in a while, I might be seen jamming with a band. On Maui, I worked on-call as assistant engineer /studio guitarist for Grace Recording Studio, whose clientele include:
- Hawaiian Slack-key Legends
- Hawaiian Music “Na Hoku” Award Winners
- Grammy Award Winners
- Gold/Platinum Artists and Producers
- Hollywood Movie/Sound Production
Stylistically, I’m quite versatile and cover a wide range of popular genres: Pop, Rock, Reggae, Blues, Country, R&B, Funk, Gospel/Worship, etc… My favorite is composing and playing “Original Music” which combines these genres with elements of Slide Guitar, Hawaiian Slack-key, Percussive Slap/Tap, Flamenco, Ethnic (ie. India, Celtic), Classical, etc.
Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to sit in and jam/share the stage with other great guitarists/songwriters. Most notably country music legend Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers.
