Many steel guitarists play too loud, too much, or both. My skills lie in the art of playing tastefully, and for the song—listening to and supporting the vocals. I have national touring experience with several bands, with performances at Stagecoach, Kaboo Del Mar, as well as direct support for Chris Stapleton, and Trampled by Turtles among others.

Very creative, intuitive musician that enjoys creating great music. As a singer/songwriter myself, I believe that musical hooks in songs add to the overall HOOK of the song. Too many times I hear notes but I don't hear the passion behind the notes or they don't fit the mood of the song. I enjoy taking the time needed to find the magic.
