Raised in a small farming community in South East Michigan I was exposed to a wide variety of music from an early age including Rock, Country, Bluegrass and Classical. I have always loved singing and early in high school my father bought me an acoustic guitar and I began to teach myself how to play. I was inspired by many musicians from Jimi Hendrix to Chet Atkins..
Throughout the 80's and 90's I had played in a number of local bands enjoying moderate success with 2 studiio albums and a couple songs with radio airplay.
Tired of the cold I moved to Florida in 2000 and took a long break from music to focus on family. In 2009 I decided to get back into music and joined a local band playing the local circuit and maintaining a busy schedule. After about a year I made the decision to get back to my roots and played country, bluegrass, and some classic rock with an acoustic duo and southern rock with The Copperhead Band.
