After a long musical friendship of teaching, rehearsing and performing together, we finally decided it was time to capture our sound in the studio. We sure have enjoyed the time spent, we hope you enjoy the result.
And joining us on Joan's Blues... (with special guest Phil Hey on Drums)

I was raised in a very musical family and I began playing instruments at the age of eight years old. I have been playing bass guitar since the age of twelve. My father (Drummer) and my Uncle (Lead Guitarist) are Iowa Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Growing up around a Southern Rock band has had a huge influence on me musically. I studied music theory privately with Bryon Dahl for several years while in high school. He helped me infuse jazz theory with my rock background to mold my style to what it is today.
