I consider myself a country guitarist/songwriter, but my writing style depends on inspiration first, so you'll find elements of rock, swing, traditional, and bluegrass on "Yesterday, today & Tomorrow". There are no "formula" songs on my albums. Each song is different and unique and gets written when its time comes. I pick a pretty mean guitar, and if you're a fan of the 'hot country' style of playing, you'll find some of that here. I've had the opportunity to jam with Les Paul at his home, and play shows with award winning artists like Del Shannon and Freddy Cannon on the oldies circuit. And I've played lots of big stages like Madison Square Garden, the Beacon Theater, the Bottom Line, Westbury Music Fair, the Playboy Club and others. But I don't need to rely on name dropping--my music speaks for itself. From the haunting melody of "Gozirra" to the hot pickin' of "Pull Off", once you buy my album you'll see what I mean. So go ahead--take a chance on promoting new, original music by supporting artists like myself who do it for the love of it, not for the bucks; and remember that your dollars will help to finance the next album. I thank you and I'm sure that you'll really enjoy "Between Yesterday,, today & Tomorrow".
