Microphone feedback, synthesizers and electric guitars were great teachers and inspiration.
Growing “down” in New Orleans and moving out to California expanded but also solidified my musical foundation.

Many years of learning, collaborating, writing, practicing, performing, and recording really takes it out of a person! Let's call it refinement of the endeavor.

Live experimentation led to a combination of modern musical tools like the electric bass-cello and live recording and playback (aka looping) with acoustic guitar, voice, and melodica. These are featured on “Grand Gestures Of This Malcontent Melodica”. The improvisational seeds for that album are found in instrumental fashion on “Realizing That Stage of the Evening”.
What's next? I'm excited to find out.
