Always striving to reach new and unique creative heights thru performance, recording and composition, he primarily performs as an acoustic guitar soloist with no sequencing.
Quote: "Live performance sequencing can make you creatively stagnant. If you are not careful it will control you. Music has to breathe...expand and contract...not always "in your face"...With live sequencing, there are no dynamics, no peaks and valleys, no fluctuation in tempo, no drama, no tension , no resolve. Sometimes... with music it's not what you play, it's what you don't play.
