When I find a cover song that I like, I’ll work away at it
until I kind of believe that I wrote it.
— Nick Lowe

My sets consist of original songs, cover songs, or a mix of both, depending on the needs of the venue or event.  When covers are included, I can tailor them by genre, era, mood, etc., if requested.

You can hear my original songs here.
