I am a singer/songwriter who plays a mix of original and cover music. While my repertoire is not as extensive as someone who plays covers exclusively, I am glad to learn specific songs if they are requested beforehand.
My style and sound has similarities to Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Paul Simon. I have twenty years of experience playing in a variety of bands, styles, and situations. My setup also allows for some looping and sound layering so that I can play lead and build soundscapes. If you are looking for a full band, I also play in a six piece acoustic cover band.
I am easy to work with, reliable, timely, and dedicated to meeting your requests.

Gig Length: 60 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
I have the ability to player a coffee shop style singer/songwriter performance, or just to provide atmosphere with instrumental acoustic sounds and melodies.
Additional Booking Notes
I have a small footprint, and play well at lower volumes, using a 60W Line 6 2-channel amp that allows for both vocals and guitar. I run effects through an iPad setup, and use a Boss loop station for layering sounds (allows for some lead playing).
While my focus is primarily originals in the vein of Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, James Taylor, I do have a selection of covers. Here are a few that come to mind:
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley version
Gone - Jack Johnson
I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Blackbird - the Beatles
Runaway Train - Soul Asylum
I'll Follow You Into the Dark - Death Cab for Cutie
Hey there Delilah - Plain White T's
Big Blue Sea - Bob Schneider
Paradise - John Prine
Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Iz
Imagine - John Lennon
Friend of the Devil - Grateful Dead
I Know You Rider - Grateful Dead
the Boxer - Simon and Garfunkle
Lonely Stranger - Eric Clapton
Summertime - Gershwin
I am currently working to expand my cover list. Requests are welcome.
