My earliest influences started from listening to my Mom play guitar and sing. She taught me the basics of guitar and singing harmony long before I ever started school. Mom also sang barbershop and this helped me develop my ear even more. By age 12 I was playing music every day. By junior high I was in bands playing whatever was available which led me to playing the bass guitar. I played my first “real” gigs right after graduating from high school. Many cover bands and original projects followed over the next 40 years of my musical career. Bringing me to THE project… Frijid Pink!
