"After listening to Led Zeppelin IV seven years ago, I've been playing guitar. Although I'm close to finishing my BA in English and Political, I like to take time out to perform. I've played as a featured performer at Linneman's in Milwaukee, at a benefit for the Inside/Out project, as an opener for Elvis Thao and the Creatives and Married to the Sea, and at my home at Best Place.†I've played shows with former music partner of Willy Porter, Scott Jordan.†And Willy Porter once said, I quote, "you have a great voice"!!
"If I don't play at least one Zeppelin song in a set, I spontaneously combust.†I like to throw down some Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who, Joan Baez, Spirit, Hendrix, etc.†I'm also working on throwing in some surprise contemporary stuff, like Modest Mouse and Neutral Milk Hotel."
