Born in Jacksonville, Florida, I was a Navy brat moving from one state to another since I was 19. Finally settling down in Southern California, I started honing my craft on on all styles of the guitar, with various teachers and college music courses. After many years of playing gigs with various professional musicians,(once including drummer Bill Lordan of Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, and Robin Trower.. and another top performer, recording engineer,and musician extrodinaire, Billy Krodel, who worked with the likes of Elton John, Ace Frehley, Pat Travers, Manny Lagod, etc. I decided to work on a CD that would appeal to a cross section of all ages and ethnic origins. Thus,Harlequin was born... Harlequin is a very sensitive approach to music with regards to mood, emotion, feelings and different styles... Enjoy!
