My one goal here is to make YOUR SONGS sound better. It's that simple! If you have a song that needs that perfect guitar hook, memorable riff, or soulful solo I'm here for you. I have the skills, the experience, the gear & the knowledge to make it happen!

Hello, my name is JJ, thank you for checking out my profile. I've selected some excerpts from sessions I've done and put them together into one file for you to listen to. I recorded all the guitars (both electric & acoustic) that you hear on each excerpt.

I've been playing guitar professionally for 13 years now. During this time I've been fortunate enough to work with incredibly talented people both on stage and in the studio. By serendipity, I've worked with many different genres and settings, but I tend to lean towards rock, blues, funk, and pop infused music.

During the last 4 years, I've been accumulating both the gear and the knowledge to start producing music from home. The goal is to slowly transition from playing 150+ shows a year to a stay at home full-time musician ;)

I pride myself in getting great guitar tones -both electric and acoustic-, writing catchy riffs/parts, and playing solos with a lot of feeling. I play what the song needs.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.
