About Me:

Most of the time I'm playing the guitar trying to get the sound in my head to come out and through my fingers. Other than that I can be found at Second City, or the bars around it, doing improv.

I first heard BH while in the back of my brothers car. The song was another lonely day and it spoke to me. Started to research and bought Fight For Your Mind and was melted away when I heard God Fearing Man and the rest is history.

Following Ben's influences, I found vast array of blues men and rock and rollers that I soon started to learn from. It was like uncovering an iceberg or tracking different branches in a tall vast tree. more»
