A GRAMMY-awarded songwriter with the ears and hands to guide your song from start to finish.
Have a good song and want to make it great? Have a great song and want to turn it into a great record? Need songs, guitar, arrangement or production help (or all of the above) for your dream project? I can help.
I've been writing songs and playing guitar for more than twenty years; I worked as a songwriter and touring guitarist in Boston and Nashville before settling outside Philadelphia with my family. I specialize in "Americana" music like country, bluegrass, and roots rock, but I love pretty much all music and have worked in pretty much every genre.
Wherever you want your music to take you, I can help you get there. Let's talk.

A: Writing, writing, writing, always writing
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
