Artist Biography:
I'm an acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter as well as ringleader of the Emerald City Jug Band and its more pop-oriented offshoot, Teeth, Hair & Eyeballs. I play Roots, Blues & Rants, an eclectic collection of traditional and pop tunes from ragtime to rap (OK, folk rap) as well as world beats, with passion and (I hope) wit. For much of my career I immersed myself in finger-style blues and folk music, but for the last decade or so my tunes have had a way of coming out however they want - jazz, rock, reggae, country, or whatever; the song tells me what it needs. (And here I thought I was in complete control!) My material includes whatever comes to mind, from sappy love songs to weird dreamscapes to biting political rants. My ambition is to evoke feelings, start you thinking, and make you laugh - sometimes within the same song.
