about

While my initial forays into the craft of songwriting took place while under the influence of the likes of Phil Ochs and early Bob Dylan, a “protest singer” I was not meant to be; I was equally under the sway of the romantic mysticism of Townes Van Zandt, Nick Drake, and later Bob Dylan. While many of my songs are personal “protests” in the face of personal challenges, ‘A Good One’ is my first recorded attempt at expressing protest on behalf of a collective united by the common belief that guns are stupid.
