He began as a gospel piano player and singer in his teens and took up guitar and banjo during the folk era in New York City (NEW YORK CITY!), playing everywhere from Gerdie's Folk City to Carnegie Hall. In 1975 he went electric and put together a highly successful country-rock band, touring from Nashville to Las Vegas, opening and playing back up for everyone from Kitty Wells and Bill Anderson to Carl Smith and Ian Tyson. In the eighties he moved to LA, met and married Jo Ann, and bought a ranch near Tehachapi. These days he fishes, and does never-ending repairs on his ranch in a climate that could "take the hide off a rhino," but he's never lost his love of music.
Fortunately for music fans, he still likes "to get out and shake it up once in a while," as he puts its.
