Originally from Rochester, NY, I've been living in the Westchester, County/Lower Hudson Valley region for some time now, soaking up the rich history, culture and musical influences of this area. Child of the '60's and '70's as I am, I cut my musical teeth with the works of Dylan, The Stones, Neil Young, the Beatles, Van Morrison, CCR, The Band, Leonard Cohen, Led Zeppelin and others. More recently, I've been studying the works of the old pre-war blues masters such as Blind Willie McTell, Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis, Lightnin' Hopkins, Robert Johnson.
"I've had the good fortune to have had some guitar teachers who have helped me hone my musical chops as well as talented musical friends with whom I've played who continue to keep me enthused about playing and writing." -Phil Dollard
