I was recently contacted by a radio station in France. They are called La Note Picking Radio and they stream finger style guitar music 24/7! I quickly grabbed a cd and a couple of radio promotional recordings and sent them in the mail. I have never had one of my songs on the radio, but thanks to this awesome station there is hope for the finger style guitar community! Check them out:

I am excited to announce that I’ll be playing The National in Richmond Va. on Friday dec. 14th. I will be opening up for the band Three Sheets To The Wind. They are an awesome band that cover the hits from the 70′s and 80′s. Ive always wondered what it would be like to play my acoustic through the National’s sound system. Thanks to Three Sheets, I’ll soon find out!
I just returned from the Home of the Legends Thumbpicking Contest in Kentucky. After twenty-two hours round trip and four hours competing, I’m home and already thinking about next year!
The amount of talent in the green room was astounding and the players were a lot of fun to hang out with. I didn’t place this time, but I felt like I played really well. It’s easy to take things personally when the judges don’t dig your style (this has happened once or twice), but all you can do is keep playing. I tell my students that sometimes losing teaches you more than winning.
Finally, I want to give a huge shout out to Scott Taylor-the winner! Scott is one of the best guitarists I have met and just as nice of a guy. Scott and his wife are fixtures in the fingerstyle scene and that awesome prize, a Gretsch Country Gentleman, couldn’t have gone to a better picker-Congratulations!
I was recently added to http://fingerstyleguitarists.com/! I’ve spent quite some time checking out all the amazing players on the site and I’m extremely grateful to be a part of this fingerstyle guitar collection. Check it out!
Greetings from Nashville! We’re into the second day of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society and everything’s in full swing. The amount of talent and love in one place is absolutely astounding! I had the honor of playing the Belmont Room earlier today. Here’s the setlist:
Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
Superstition> Blue Finger
Super Mario Bros.> Wasting Time
St. Louis Blues
It’s one of the scariest places a player can play, but I can’t wait to do it again!
Test..test…check…check…Is this thing on?
I would like to welcome everyone to my website! I’m thrilled to have one and I hope the folks who are interested in my music find it fun and helpful. I will be making some additions to the site in the next few weeks. For now, have a look around and if you like the album, thanks to the wonders of technology it can be yours in no time.
