Started playing at the age of 16 in basement bands, started gigging to make a living at the age of 18. Now 31 years and 25 albums later, things are good!
Find my new album "A Moment in Chiros" for $4.99 on iTunes here:
and $11 on Amazon or CDbaby or in a store near you. Bonus track on the Japanese version, harder to find but worth the effort with a full on bonus track (NO CHEESE)!

What gear do you use?
Live I like a sturdy mic a Beta 58 is a great standard, but I really prefer the warmer tone of a Sennheiser live (however wasn't happy with the mute function on the wireless I Sennheiser I have, so I picked up an EV that is pretty good. Recording I've used the Groove Tube M1 for years and years, I picked one up used (very reasonable) and it sounds better and way more consistent than the way more expensive Neumann U87 vintage battery op version I had.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
This one could take forever, so I'm going to come back to it!

What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
I've played for intimate audiences of 10 to 25,000 they're all memorable and worth the time, depending on your attitude.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Skip the album, I'll enjoy the weather and the sounds that are native, I can always sing.
