Raised in several countries in South America, came of age musically in the Chicago blues scene, working with now Blues Hall-of-Famer Lonnie Brooks. After moving to Knoxville, Tennessee, joined Terry Hill's Balboa, which worked out of the NYC area for several years and was later voted in the top 5 of Knoxville's "Best Bands Ever." Performed on over 1500 songs on TNN's "I-40 Paradise" and "Pickin’ at the Paradise" music television series, backing up hundreds of country, Americana and other artists. Formed the hqband, which won over a dozen "Best of Knoxville" awards and released 5 albums. For many years toured and recorded with R.B. Morris, whom Lucinda Williams once called the greatest "unknown" songwriter in the country; was a proud member of the regional swing and honky-tonk institution Lonesome Coyotes; and with Terry Hill formed the fictional band UWP. A 2015 solo recording, Field Notes, follows the 2007 all-acoustic release Wherever You Go, and a second UWP album, Tone Poems, was released in 2018. Now living in Charleston SC, occasionally performing solo and with fellow East Tennessee ex-pat Kevin Crothers and various imaginary bands.
