NFTs in 2022
Happy New Year! Hope this year finds you healthy and brings you many good things. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the blockchain and NFTs and getting very interested in the potential. As I always do, diving in the deep end and learn by doing. As such, I’ve launched my first NFT collection […]
New Single, “Waterloo”
This song was inspired by several trips to Waterloo, IA. It’s really about any small town USA, where it’s great to place to grow up.

New Single – “Let Me In”
I wrote this song about 10 years ago. I tend to write songs and then there’s something about it that isn’t fitting, so I put it on the shelf. I was about to re-shelve this one until I found a great acoustic drum beat that fit the song perfectly. ~Available everywhere on 7/2/21~ I’m on […]
All About That Bass
I’m a huge fan of the bass guitar. I think it’s the most underrated instrument in modern music. If you took the bass out of 90% of the rock songs between 1972 – 2000, those songs would be completely different. Bass was my second instrument and started playing at 15 years old. My first bass […]
Quarantine Sessions: Inthemiddle
Here’s a song about growing older and stopping to take in the scenery. This is the second song in the quarantine sessions series where I just use my iPhone voice memo to record a single take. Here’s a link to Distrokid (my distributor) and they have links to all the digital services.

Just me+guitar+iPhone. First song to be released is a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song – “American Girl.” Here’s the link for […]

Gigable Favs Playlist on Spotify
Since 2015, I’ve been building this playlist which can be generally categorized as Americana, but it contains much more. 42 hours and 52min more to be exact! Enjoy!
Time Stand Still
Absolutely epic. This was one of my favorite Rush songs of that era. This group has captured the essence of this song in such a beautiful rendition – without drums.
Celebrating Neil Peart (aka “The Professor”)
My first concert was in 1984 and it was Rush at the Rosemont Horizon (now, Allstate Arena). I remember the day vividly. It was June 29th and cold. I stood outside my house waiting to be picked up and remember thinking, ‘this is too cold for June.’ My friend and bandmate, Paul picked me up […]
