CURRENT PROJECT:
I'm writing and recording my solo acoustic guitar CD "Late and Quiet". The compositions are 6 and 12-string original solo acoustic guitar instrumentals.


CD artwork by Evanthia Milara

I think of each tune as a journey. Since I don't sing on my tunes, I rely on melody, feel, energy and dynamics to translate the feelings of a particular composition. Listeners everywhere are invited to come along with me on these journeys.


OTHER PROJECTS:
As time and inspiration allows, I'm working on my electric compositions which are a blend of eclectic/pop/blues/jazz/rock/twang originals that groove.

I'm also involved in a few writing projects...stay tuned...and I'm always interested to discuss collaborating in other projects!
