I began to play guitar at the ripe old age of 9 and shortly after started my mind around writing songs. I guess you could say I've always known what I wanted to be when I grow up.
Currently I perform with three bands that play those songs that keep coming out of my head. There's St Cecelia, The Lucas Band & The Pickups.
If that wasn't enough to keep me busy I'm currently on tour playing guitar for Bettye Lavette.
