I have been playing guitar, and writing songs and instrumental pieces for over fifty years. I've played in some fine bands and ensembles, including Wabi Sabi, with Patrick Petro, and The Mongrel Dogs, with Ron Dye and Alex Puga. In 2016 I teamed up with the dynamic and inventive vocalist, Julianna Goldsmith, to record some of my songs. The project led to the formation of The Dogmatics, a band of local superstar musicians -- Veronica Pejril on keyboards, Steve Michael on electric guitar, Rick Provine on drums, Bill Hamm on bass, and Heather Sloan on vibes and percussion, in addition to Julianna's voice and my acoustic guitar. We recorded a wonderful album of my songs, titled simply The Dogmatics. It's available on Soundcloud and other steaming services like iTunes and Amazon.
In February 2018 Julianna and I released a duo acoustic album, The Reaper's Strut, engineered and produced by Lance Gordon, with inspired assistance from Alex Puga on harp, Mike Curtis on dobro, and Lance on second guitar. Check out the tracks by clicking on the image.
Since 2018, Julianna, Alex Puga and I have been performing sultry blues as Giuliana and The Gems.
