Versatile guitar player, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, etc.
Who needs more guitar...I mean, anyone can play guitar right? Thing is, Radiohead said that, not me. If you ask me, I'd say yes...you do need more guitar!
I started playing guitar over 25 years ago, approached the instrument by ear, trying to emulate the music that I love...and then I'd write, and write, and write...
I lived in NYC for about 12-13 years, which is mainly where I cut my teeth playing live in various haunts with other talented musicians & improving my chops. I eventually moved back to my home town of Saugerties, NY & proceeded to set up a studio space in my house...soundproofing the walls, purchasing new gear...generally improving my recording environment. The result of this was a solo recording project called AM Gold, which I think best exemplifies my playing & songwriting. (Check it out HERE)
Generally speaking, I don't really care for specific genres as much as I care for certain musical elements: songs that are melodically & structurally interesting, while not veering too far from the familiar: Genesis, Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren, Elliott Smith, Slayer, Stevie Wonder, etc..lots of stuff. My playing & writing is mainly influenced by these types of artists, but I would love to help contribute guitar, songwriting/recording assistance, bass, drums, keys, etc...to any ol' project of yours!
