Born and raised in a small town in south central Pennsylvania — still lives within a mile of his birthplace. Started drumming at 15, self-taught, no formal training — still plays like it. Started singing duets at 7 with his Mother in the local church, and has fronted a band — still sings when the occasion hits but probably shouldn’t. No flash, no theatrics, plays for the song — does his best to dig a trench for the band to settle into. And if I don’t ask you to “sit in for one” — then NO, you can’t play my kit. Old, gray, and a bit like expired milk — chunky and sour.
