Now retired from an exacting academic career, I'm getting back to my first love - Chicago & Texas blues & blues rock. In former 'lives', I've been a session & gigging pro muso and recording engineer.
I’m in the process of working-up a blues/rock outfit to get in front of an audience with some 'down and dirty' (but GOOD) gigs, doing it for the music and a good time, not another ‘career’. I’d like to add KEYS at some stage - some vocal ability would be a bonus. Beyond that, it’s good to know who’s around and about so please feel free to get in touch!
