I am a singer, guitarist, and songwriter available to play cover songs as well as original music. I have played professionally in bars, restaurants, and clubs since 2011 have have been booked in many cities along the East Coast from Miami to DC, Philly and Syracuse. I continue to play regularly at venues throughout Westchester and NYC. I've included some of the songs I play in my 'song list' however, I also offer to learn a limited amount of special requests per event.
When performing by myself on acoustic guitar, I also play harmonica on some songs and use a looping pedal to layer bass-lines and improvise lead guitar parts on others, allowing me to maintain a diversity of sound throughout a solo set. I play various styles ranging from R&B/ Soul (Stevie Wonder, Macy Gray), Singer-Songwriter (Sheryl Crow, Tracy Chapman), Blues/ Rock (Janis Joplin, Tom Petty), and Folk (Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan), as well as some acoustic and even 'folkified' versions of pop songs which are often a great time with audiences (a bluegrass version of Katy Perry's "Hot n Cold," a folksy spin on Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy," etc). In addition to playing my solo arrangements of these cover songs, I also play at bars and restaurants with my full cover band including a bassist, drummer, and another guitar player. Depending on your event and the availability of my band, I am available to play both solo or with the full group.
In addition to my cover repertoire, I also perform my own folk/ rock- based pop music regularly at singer-songwriter venues across Manhattan and Brooklyn as well as fronting my band at clubs on Manhattan's Lower East Side such as Rockwood Music Hall and The Studio at Webster Hall.
