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! 

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. 

Thanks for reading!
