COMMON PEOPLE ﷯ Had a blast play at the official pre-party for the Common People festival. ALBUM REVIEW ﷯ Blues Matters Magazine wrote a great review about my album. RADIO INTERVIEW ﷯ I had great fun doing a live session and interview on Abby 104. This can still be heard on my Soundcloud page.

SUPPORT ﷯ In December 2014 I was lucky to support an amazing guitarist Rodney Branigan. This dude plays two guitars at the same time!
SUPPORT ﷯ In 2013 I was lucky to support Miller Anderson. Miller has been involved with many successful bands including T.Rex & Spencer Davis Group. SUPPORT ﷯ In 2013 I open for Larry Garner and his band. I was overwhelmed to share the stage with such a bona fide blues man.
