Yep, that's me in the photos up there. You can see when this all got started. Back then I was really more interested in listening to music than playing it. My aunts gifted me a collection of Billboard's top ten 45s dating from 1962 to 1966 and I would listen to them all day long on my little suitcase record player. It wasn't until I was thirteen that I purchased my first guitar and started to take lessons. In high school, I set out to learn every Rush song ever written. I loved them and only them. Though, I did have a brief affair with Blue Oyster Cult before leaving for college. There, I became friends with a DJ at our school's radio station. He introduced me to the music of The Smiths, The Cure, R.E.M and Laurie Anderson. I was so taken with all this new music, I even started DJing at the station and co-fronted an alt-rock cover band. The road from playing Alex Lifeson guitar licks to being a singer-songwriter who sounds more like a hopeful Elliot Smith than Robert Smith has been a fun ride. The focus on acoustic music and songwriting happened in the early 90's when I discovered the music of the Indigo Girls and Tracy Chapman. I became ravenous for anything in this genre and traded in my Les Paul for an acoustic guitar. It wasn't until I saw Jeffrey Gains open for Melissa Etheridge at the Chicago Theater that I heard my calling. He was just one man with a guitar captivating an audience with his songs and I knew then what I wanted to do. Since then, I have performed mostly as a solo act, though my first two releases Icarus Gounded (2000) and Runt (2004) featured predominantly full band arrangements. My new CD, Don't Be a Stranger, is an acoustic collection of songs intimately performed to be more reminiscent of my live shows. I strived to create an experience that removes the barrier between artist and listener - where we're just hanging out and I happen to be the guy with the guitar. Anything else you want to know, just call...seriously. (773) 532-9423.
