I'm a native of central Ohio and I've been playing guitar since the late 70's. I was brought up with music in my family. My grandfather was always playing guitar. My Uncle also played guitar. So, guitar always seemed natural with all the influence in the family. By the age of 17 I was dabbling in lead guitar and began playing in bands. I recorded 2 CD's with the band Lost Angel (Destination released in 1998 and Psychosomatic released in 2001). Violet Ascent is an all instrumental CD and all the sounds were generated by guitar (although some effects may sound like keyboards). I hope you like it and I thank you for taking the time to read this. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to use my music in some kind of production.
