I've been playing and making music all my life, on piano, organ, synths, guitar and bass. Mostly I'm known as a jazz and blues keyboard player and singer. Over the past 30 years or so I've played lots of gigs with a lot of bands around Central Texas and released CDs of original music. Songs from my CD releases are available for download from online services such as iTunes, eMusic, Napster and Rhapsody.
2016 summary; 106 gigs shows played, mostly solo piano/vocal gigs at Luigi's and Paolo's. Band gigs with Midnight Express, Brazos Valley All Star band, Java Jazz, Mike Reed & the Revelators, Johnny D and the Genotones, and my own trio. Did some studio work with Donald Ray Johnson.
In February 2015 I added some keyboard parts to the new Joey McGee CD, and continued work on a 3 song EP project with drummer Wayne Smith.
I was a guest on the KAMU-FM Wednesday afternoon jazz show on October 15th, 2015. The show can be streamed here, or you can download the show as an MP3 file here. Thanks to Dr. Wayne Smith of the Big Apple Trio for having me as a guest!
