Welcome

About Me

I’m a retired Middle School Math Teacher and I have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up: a musician! I have been performing solo and in bands as a hobby for the better part of 25 years. Now, I want to spend my retirement traveling around and making music full-time for people who want nothing more than to be together and have a good time! I play a popular, acoustic mix of country, folk, Americana and classic rock songs. Additionally, I have enough original material to do at least two good sets!

I also play some sloppy electric guitar for a Classic Rock/Country cover band called The Cutaways! Check us out!

If that’s not enough, I play in another dirty folk, bluegrassy-Americana-ish type of band called the Rock Creek Song Dogs.

Listen Up!

I recently released my second CD of all-original music called Fool on a Stool! I’ve been working hard in my home studio to the follow-up to Made From Scratch, which was released early 2018. You can listen to it and download the tracks for free:

I’m on iTunes and Apple Music!

Check out both of these CDs, plus an assortment of  other projects from over the years.

Most recent video…breaking out an old Turnpike Troubadours song, “7 & 7”, as the night was winding down and nobody was really paying any attention!

“Do What We Do” is the name of this song. This was recorded at the Made From Scratch CD Release Party at Farm to Fork in Mondovi, WI, on May 19, 2018.

“Small Town Saturday Night”, by Hal Ketchum, is one of my favorite country songs. I played it live at the Barrel Room in Menomonie on March 16, 2019.

Here’s a video of me singing with my band, The Cutaways. It’s an old Bob Dylan tune called, “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.”

Sitting around in The Spare Bedroom Studio working on a song by The Turnpike Troubadours called, “Good Lord, Lorrie.”

Here I am singing “Margaritaville” at an open mic at Kyote’s Den.

Finally, I play some mighty sloppy guitar in an Americana/Roots band called The Rock Creek Song Dogs. Here I am singing “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” on New Year’s Eve.
