Philadelphia, PA-based freelance acoustic guitarist-vocalist, averaging 150 social and business solo gigs annually since 2002. Extensive memorized repertoire, spanning the decades and genres, Bach to Rock: classic-prog-soft-indie rock, standards, soul, R & B, lite FM, lite jazz, oldies, hits and album cuts, plus classical, instrumental, traditional, bluegrass, Irish and holiday music, performed 100% live and by memory -- no backing tracks, drum machine, lyric sheets, written music, tablet or screen. Ivy-educated. General liability insured. Professionalism, musicianship and client satisfaction are my focuses. Almost all of my repertoire was and is learned by ear. Arranging-wise, my approach is holistic and often pianistic. I do the whole thing, not just guitar and vocal parts, incorporating all parts from the recordings, plus a range of guitar techniques, improvisation and composition to create and deliver my most detailed, effective and musical renditions. Requests are welcome. Guests singers too, when appropriate. Whatever it takes for folks to have a great time. It's always my pleasure to make music and entertain!
