I am principle songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist for Cat Casual & the Final Word. Basically, it's hard to maintain a reliable backing band for shows, tours, etc, and I want to have reliable, committed folks; keep a "deep bench", so to speak.
Oklahoma-born. I have lived off and on in Louisville for 20+ years. I lived in Brooklyn/New York for five years, playing with Shilpa Ray, Phantom Family Halo, gigging and recording with some of my heroes such as Steve Wynn, Ivan Julian, Steve Shelley, etc.
I have played in Louisville-based bands Bodyhammer, Tyrone, and Lucky Pineapple.
I was curator for Burn to Shine Vol. 4 (2005)
