ABOUT

Mature steel guitar player. Seeks classic country band. Doubles on blues-harp and Dobro. Hoping to find a band or project which needs pedal steel or Dobro. Or I hope to find a lead singer/front-man with some guitar skills who knows and loves classic country music to join a weekend band which I will put together myself, if I can't find one to join. I DO sing and play steel but I'd rather have the help. I'm also a killer harp-player.

Influences

Country music artists from 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s,. But open-minded too. Favs: Ol' Hank; Merle Haggard; Ray Price; Conway; Dwight; George Strait; George Jones; Willie; Waylon; and the boys. Johnny Cash; Kris; Bob Wills; Buck Owens; Ronnie Milsap; Charlie Pride; John Conlee; hard-core country artists, etc.. And despite what I've filled out, I do have studio experience as well. Available for projects or bookings most days and evenings. try me! Also into acoustic blues or Americana and roots. Primarily I'm country. Musicians who play pedal steel and Dobro tend to lean toward that genre of music. Yet anything is possible.
