I’m trying to avoid the classic musician trope of a website that hasn’t been updated for months or years. With that in mind, I’ve just updated the Live Dates page. I’ve got a fairly busy November ahead so keep an eye out for if I’m playing near you!

There are some things brewing for the future that I’m looking forward to announcing on here soon. But in the meantime I’ve been really busy being a sideman for various groups. Most recently I was touring with Josh Schofield’s quartet. Here is a review of one of the gigs we did: REVIEW

Speak Soon!
