A. Acoustic guitar Jazz and Classic Pop
A. Approximately twenty pieces per hour – all on acoustic/classical guitar.
A. Yes – I can play as a duo and trio (light percussion, additional acoustic guitar, ukulele, or bass)
A. I love creating intimate and beautiful sounds, and the challenge of trying to make six strings sound like a full band, or even an orchestra – melody, bass, chords and rhythm all on one small instrument (organically – without digital assistance). This is what attracted me to classical guitar, jazz and Bossa Nova music when I was young. It’s what led me to pursue a degree in music and it thrills and inspires me to this day. I only play music that I love, and I believe that comes across to the audience in my performances.
A. Charlotte, NC
A. I play heartfelt, easy-listening music with classical technique, but a nod to well-crafted traditional jazz and popular music of the past. I’m thoroughly dependable, on-time and professional (but relaxed) in my presentation. My repertoire is quite extensive and varied in order to cater to all musical tastes.
A. I have a very compact but professional PA system but no lights.
