I've always loved to sing, but didn't start performing until about 1992. I first joined a light rock band called "Unknown Legend." Then there was "Shovelhead," a classic rock band formed for Halloween, 1995. Then I started singing at blues jams in the Seattle area, and in about 1996 I formed a blues rock band called "Rain City Blues." We played clubs in the Seattle area for about two years. After I got tired of smoky clubs, late nights, and flaky bandmates, I switched to jazz. In 2002 I joined "Back Burner," a bluegrass and swing band. In 2016 I started playing guitar and writing songs. I'm excited to see where this next chapter takes me.
