I am a new haven based Singer Songwriter, Electric Harpist and Piano(bar) player. If you folks are ever looking to book new acts I think I might be a good fit. Though I do write original music, I play pianobar every saturday so i am pretty experienced and competent at taking requests and providing the “pianoman” experience. I will link some different music from my youtube for some examples of my work. Thank you for your time.
After many years of singing and playing guitar, bass and mandolin in bands, duos and solo — at clubs, lounges, schools, corporate events, private parties, ski resorts, festivals, cruises and more — throughout western Washington and beyond, well, it’s all gotten a bit simpler, now doing all solo stuff. And simple’s a whole lot of fun.
I play both steel and nylon-string electric/acoustic guitar and often use a looping pedal to layer guitar parts. Guitar and vocals go through a quick-setup solo PA system, and with a mic, mic stand and a few cords, it’s all good to go. It all comes together in a tidy little package that works very well for clubs, wine bars, pubs, coffee houses, lounges, parties and special events. It’s a blast, and an honor to play for every audience.
Music’s in the family. My mom and dad met in a lounge, way back when, when one of my dad’s friends bet him that he couldn’t get a date with the singer in the band — my mom-to-be. Well, he won that bet, obviously. My mom was a pianist, played a bit of ukelele — and an amazing singer. She won the northwest regional tryouts for the Metropolitan Opera, in fact — but chose to have a family instead. My dad, well, he loved music too, and was a darn good whistler. We always had music in the house, ranging from Nat King Cole, Montovani and the West Side Story soundtrack to the Beatles, top-40 AM radio and country radio too. My three siblings (all older) all played at least a little bit of guitar, so although I originally started out playing drums, I really had no choice in the matter.
Today, my two sons continue the tradition, both being excellent and award-winning musicians in their own right — one on guitar, one on the drums. Proud dad here.
