Webpage update!

OK! I've updated my web page with a few changes to spruce the place up a bit!

Grey Morning Light was released over two years ago so it was time to update the theme!

Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments or on the sosh-nets (aka social media)! 

I'm hoping to book a few shows before the end of 2018. A lot of spots have their calendars filled out by now but you never know if something might open up. PMA!!

Time for a refresh!

Grey Morning Light has been out for over 2 years (!!) and I think it’s time to update the look of this site! 

Look for some changes coming soon!

Speaking of changes I’ve made improvements to my standalone performance rig and replaced my 80’s vintage Crate G-212 guitar amp with a Fender Rumble 40 bass amp. 

This will be used to amplify my tapping left foot and gives me that ‘kick drum’ sound while strumming and shouting. 

I’m hoping to get some shows booked for the Fall so people can hear the improvement!! 

As always I’ll try to post more often!

Blog blog blog

Wow no posts since January!  

I need to step up my blogging game. 

Well it’s June tomorrow and the 1st half of 2018 was very successful for my music.  

My residency at The Tavern on the Common was great and I really enjoyed playing there twice a month.  

I was able to use the money I earned playing to invest in a new guitar amp that is significantly easier to carry (only one arm required!) but it still kicks ass and has great tone for acoustic or electric guitars.  

I’m going to look into a one arm capable bass amp for my stomp board at some point as well! 

Moving forward I’m gonna try and post more often on here now that I have the mobile blog app and try not to focus all of my posts solely on my musical ventures... We’ll see how that goes!

Thanks for reading! 

 

Testing out the squarespace blog app

Hi!  

I'm trying out the Squarespace blogging app on my phone. If it works ok hopefully I'll be posting more often. I do like to post but never think to because I'm usually too busy or not at my computer.  

Well we'll see how it goes! 

While I'm here, just a reminder to check the shows tab. I added several dates for late summer and early fall!

ROCK  

Happy 2017! Lets rock.

Wow I have not posted in several months! I need to work on keeping this little blog updated a bit more often!

I couldn't let January go by without posting a welcome to 2017 message!

I hope this will great year for everyone reading. 

2016 was a very eventful year for me music-wise after releasing my second album, "Grey Morning Light". It got great reviews and I am very happy with how it turned out. (Just a reminder you can listen to all of the tracks for free. Just click the 'Music' Link.)

In 2017 I'm going to try and improve on my guitar playing / foot tapping and vocals, learn a few new tunes and hopefully complete some half-finished originals for a future album. I'm hoping I can play a few more shows as well! I've got my stand-alone rig dialed in right now. 

If there is an artist you'd like to hear me cover, let me know! You can contact me under the 'Contact' link, or just leave a comment. I recently learned a Steve Earle song after someone asked if I could play one at a recent show. It's that easy!

In addition to playing the hits I've been trying to think of some unexpected artists I can put my personal spin on like Dio or Ice T. I like to keep you on your toes.
