ABOUT

I'm a guitar player, producer, songwriter - in no particular order.
I've played guitar for Nanci Griffith, Kim Richey, Mary Gauthier, David Olney and a bunch of other folks. I've produced records for Nanci Griffith, Otis Gibbs, Jason Ringenberg, Mac Wiseman, Peter Cooper and Eric Brace and a lot of other folks, some of them you may never have heard of. I write a lot of songs - mostly Bluegrass. Some of them have been cut by Kim Richey, Nanci Griffith, John Prine, Marty Stuart, Irene Kelley, Balsam Range, Junior Sisk, Kenny and Amanda Smith, Terry Baucom And The Dukes Of Drive, Chris Jones And The Nightdrivers and many more. My wife and I live in the country. I have two dogs, six chickens and some really nice guitars.  Music is all I ever wanted to do and all I ever did - I'll try to keep it like that.
