Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am a music journalist and photographer whose work appears in Fretboard Journal, FGM, Bluegrass Unlimited, Mandolin Magazine, Acoustic Guitar, along with past work for Frets, Pickin', Mandolin World News, etc. I love using my writing and photography skills to further the careers of the musicians I admire.
As a musician, I've played and recorded with Indiana based groups including County Line, Playing With Fire, the Circle City Slickers, Hot Club of Naptown and many more. I love playing live gigs - it's the only place I truly feel alive. I also write very strong original material in a variety of styles that I'm working at getting out to the music industry now.
Good to hear from you! I guess this new site just goes to show us we better be nice to Dan Miller, he can really round up a crowd when he wants to!
Hope you are doing well and we get you down to Winfield this fall.
