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 Alejandro 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 streaming services like iTunes and Amazon. But you can hear it right here, too, gratis.
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 Alejandro Puga on harp, Mike Curtis on dobro, and Lance on second guitar. Check out the tracks by clicking on the image.
I've currently embarked on a project of recording my "catalogue" of over a hundred songs and pieces in zero-degree arrangements, with my solo guitars and voice. I have no love of performing any more, but I do love this music.
