sideman [sahyd-man, -muh n] noun : A skilled mercenary enriching the performances of singer-songwriters, acoustic solo acts and bands.


As a sideman listening comes first, then I add just enough to enrich your performance.

I read music, count time and hold to a metronome. I cover a variety of approaches from fingerstyle to backing to solos.

Listen to my original, instrumental music at Random String Records.

Are you a singer-songwriter, solo acoustic act or band that needs energy or variety to hold your audience and build excitement?


You need a sideman.
