I have had the pleasure of performing throughout the Washington DC Metro area for the last 16 years at Jammin Java, the Black Cat, IOTA, Parallel Wine Bistro, DNV Rooftop Lounge, 868 Estates Vineyards, Hidden Brook Winery, Fabioli Cellars, 1836 Taproom, Ragtime Restaurant, the Ashburn Pub, Monks BBQ, 930 Club Back Bar, Battlestreet Live, and Whitlow’s on Wilson to name just a few. I perform solo acoustic (your favorite music from the 60s through today, featuring loops, percussion, and tasty grooves) as well as some DJ/Electronica/fun noises.
I write, record, produce, and subsequently perform a lot of different flavors (Samples Below). I blame an eclectic musical background growing up, from Otis Redding, to the Doors, to Bauhaus, Erasure, Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Tom Waits and everything in between. I try not to limit the areas of exploration. I have played acoustic for years, solo, in groups–it’s a beautiful, engaging, and revealing sound if done right (subjective). I don’t know that I’ve ever called myself a singer-songwriter (okay–there was that one phase).
