Songwriter, Singer, Storyteller, Slide Guitarist, Washboard Percussionist and Sawplayer
An award winning songwriter, recording / performance artist who has gained international media attention via his recent composition "Wall Street Bailout Blues" and whose music has been featured in a half dozen documentary films, multi-million dollar industry productions, regional television commercials, on the recordings of more than a dozen other Northwest artists, in addition to 21 self produced recordings since 1995.
A found object / junk artist, that turns recycled trash into musical treasure, "Nobro" resophonic guitars. Mixing the anti-convention aesthetics of the Dada movement with that of the Folk and Jug Band musical artistry of the early 1900s and their DIY philosophy of making and playing their own musical instruments, crafted from common or discarded items.
A virtuoso in the musical folk art of bowing melodies with a hand saw. "One of the best in the world".
