He is the rare artist who writes and sings songs that are based on his own life and experiences. A 2011 Blues Music Award nominee and an American troubadour. Glenn Nishida at Pacifica Studios was the recording engineer, and our own Keith Johnson did the final mastering. Keith states it has very good sonics and sends it out with his blessing!
