Raised in several countries in South America, came of age musically in the Chicago blues scene, working with Blues Hall-of-Famer Lonnie Brooks. Later, out of Knoxville, played and recorded with Balboa, which tried its luck in NYC and was later voted in the top 5 of Metro Pulse's "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; 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, followed the 2007 all-acoustic release Wherever You Go, and a second UWP album, Tone Poems, was released in 2018. Now living in Charleston SC, performing solo and with various imaginary bands.
