I write songs and strum the guitar.
Then I wander around and let serendipity lead me to all kinds of people in all kinds of places and invite them to #justshowup to random things for random reasons.
I have been doing the latter literally and figuratively since I was born; the curse of the wanderlust.
I have been doing the former since I first landed in NYC from Chicago when I wrote songs as a way to teach myself the guitar. Open mics in tiny gritty village bars led to fronting alt-rock bands in bigger gritty village bars to singer-songwriter troubadour-dom to multiple musical projects.
These tendencies came to a head in recent years to form a quirky beautiful growing virtual musical village of collaborators and co-conspirators. What resulted is “cowboys&aliens”, a debut of happy accidents, by this wonderful ragamuffin of a band dubbed Trio Of Awesuhm.
