I'm honored that you're joining me.
Whether I'm in the studio working on a new song or album, or playing live with my favorite band, this is the one place you can always go to know the latest with me and my music. I'll be working hard to keep the information on my site current, topical, and fun. So peruse at your leisure and check back often — you never know when something fun is going to pop up here for your enjoyment!
