About Me
Acoustic & electric guitarist, bass player, songwriter, vocalist, producer.

Greetings from 8010 Km Away!

I've spent the past 45 ½ years making music, honing my skills as a player (guitar/bass/harmonica/whatever comes up/vocals) and as a writer in a number of situations and genres: from Top 40 through through rhythm & blues through rock & roll through country-rock, even a band called Locos El Ritmo (Rhythm Crazies) which was sort of a cross between a mariachi band and The Allman Brothers.

In between, a lot of time has been spent in what I call “The Lonesome Cowboy Mode”, which is how my most recent CDs have been presented, and is how I appeared in The Netherlands in November 2012.

When I walk in the door, I bring a collection of original songs based in what I call “traditional American music forms”: rock & roll, country, The Blues, as well as 60s rhythm & blues and yes, even some folk. In short, everything I've ever played or listened to. I see myself primarily as a songwriter, not tied to a particular genre, who uses whatever musical form necessary – or combinations thereof – to best get the song across.

Thanks to Peter van Zeijl, Johanna Bodde, Gerrit Vermeij and their radio broadcasts over the past two years, I was granted the most a musician has any right to ask for: a chance to be heard. And from that chance, came the beginnings of an audience.

For whatever reason, I've never found those things in the country of my birth. So it goes. It's not a choice given to us to make. But having found them, I am fully committing myself to pursuing my lifelong musical goals in Europe. Who would do otherwise?

If I had a motto, it would be “have guitar, will travel”. I have always been - and always will be – ready and willing to play anywhere, any time. Doesn't matter if it's a festival, a club, a coffee house, a living room, a kitchen, or in the back garden. If someone wants to hear what I do, I feel it's incumbent on me to get to them, one way or another. Support act, headliner, last minute substitution . . . no matter. Any gig is a good gig, otherwise you may as well stay home and play for the furniture.

So I am looking to play wherever I can, whenever I can, beginning in mid-May, 2014.

At the moment, this is what I have in the books:

28 May - “Radiogirl” broadcast, Winschoten NL (pending)

30 May - The Podium Cafe/”Peter en Leni”, Groningen NL

31 May – De Oude Remise, Nieuweschans NL

So, from 16 May 2014 on, I am available for anything and everything. Hoping to see you along the way . . .
