Born To Be Blue
I sing and play the NS/Stick, an 8-string guitar with the combined range of guitar and bass. On this instrument, treble and bass parts are played at the same time, sounding like two or three people.

Note: My audio files were recorded live at various gigs with no overdubs, no loops, and no backing tracks. This is the real thing!

Elegant Jazz and Blues from the first half of the Twentieth Century.

People have told me I've restored their faith in live music. But I'm not playing music just to get a "wow" effect or to be a hero. I play because I love it. It makes my heart beat stronger.

I've performed at clubs, restaurants, festivals, wineries, galleries, private functions, and even at auctions. I've performed with Chuck Jackson, Julian Fauth, Rob Christian, Steve Grisbrook, Ricky Paquette, John Sherwood, Norm Villeneuve, and others.

Some of the songs I play are nearly a century old, yet my main instrument, the NS/Stick guitar+bass, was designed only a decade ago. It's a wonderful combination, as I'm sure you'll agree when you hear it.
