If epic “kiss the sky” guitar arrangements are what you’re in need of, then you’ve come to the right page!

Hi, I'm Robert, a guitarist based in Charlotte, NC. In addition to the music I write and produce, I tour and perform throughout the country with the tribute acts Chicago Rewired - The Premier Chicago Tribute Band and REO Survivor, a hybrid tribute to REO Speedwagon and Survivor. I also teach guitar at Charlotte Academy Of Music. Of course the highlight to any Chicago show is 25 or 6 to 4 in which I get to burn the house down and am often told by audience members that Terry Kath is smiling down. According to the agency that booked us, our most recent tour was booked upon the recommendation of former Chicago bassist Jason Scheff who had been watching us on YouTube.

What I bring to the table as a session guitarist is a vast wealth of musical influences that extend all the way back to age 4 when I got to meet Johnny Cash after seeing him in concert. On my latest album "The Stuff of Legends" you will hear reflections of Duane Allman, Glen Campbell (both were great session players), Jeff Beck, David Gilmour and many others who have been a guiding light throughout my career on an album that showcases slide guitar, alternate tunings, muscular riffing and peppered with some shredding here and there. From these types of elements I am able to form the right palette of musical colors / tones for your project and put forth a guitar performance that will enhance the emotion of your song.
