Whether it be the grounding earthy songs like Gecko, the mind-opening vastness of Big Sky, the astral exploration of Orion and Voyager, or the quiet longing of One Summer, each song on this work has the power to engage on multiple levels.

He is a winner in the Instrumental category of the Great American Song Contest and has twice been nominated as Texas Music Awards “Musician of the Year” for his solo recordings.
