Since you're here by accident probably, I'll get right to the point.

I write, perform and record my own alternative country music, in the tradition running from the Carter Family to Neil Young, with a dose gratuitous grit. A founding member of Philadelphia's Rolling Hayseeds, I have performed with Bag of Hammers, the Knife and Fork Band, del Pez and Cheri Knight. This music is "alternative" in the original sense that it is created without regard to popular trends or critical opinion - a form of musical luddism.

By the way, I am the only pseudo-country musician I know of who has ever worked on a farm, although all the farmboys I knew listened to Rush and Van Halen. But they did wear feed caps...
