Here’s a couple quotes about me and what I do.
“Good time witty realism. It’s a Scootenanny!” -Ira Levin (The Levins)
“A winning collection of sweetly off-kilter songs about stuff that really matters: surviving hardship, being a dad, having good friends…and chicken pot pie” Carter Smith (Common Ground Community Concerts)”
“Woody Guthrie meets the Sex Pistols” Thom Joyce (Beacon Open Mic Host)
For those that don’t know, I started playing music by playing in punk and hardcore bands. You maybe surprised by this if you just know me from my folk/country stuff. It was a big part of my life for a long time and it still is. Well I am proud to share this with you. I had the privilege to work with Tony Rettman and contributed to the book NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990. I conducted a bunch of interviews that are included in this book. If your interested in learning about the early history of New York Hardcore this is a good place to do it. Hardcore helped shape the person I am today, though this book covers the scene a little before I was really involved in it. If you click on the book it will take you to where you can get a copy.
