I’m a full time performing musician from Minnesota. I play primarily solo, but occasionally up to  a 5 piece electric band. My gigging schedule is typically 3-5 shows per week. Regular venues include fine dining, bars and festivals and theater. Stylistically I draw from many genres, and have been told time and time again that it keeps my live shows interesting. Influences come from everywhere. A few of mine musically have been: Paul Simon, Steve Earle, the Band, Grateful Dead, Waylon, Cash, Sublime, Pearl Jam, Counting Crows, Merle, and even some bad eighties tunes . I have played thousands of shows at: large festivals, back yards, coffee shops, garages, theaters, and holes in the wall all over the US. My first recording release helped my band at the time, Friends of Yoder, to be voted the best band in Central MN by the St. Cloud Times two consecutive years. Please check my calendar to get an idea of where I play. My music has been described as being good time, get down. I love what I do and live for doing it live. I regularly sing for commercial radio jingles across the country, and am available for voice overs , radio, or advertising. Samples provided on request.
