Acoustic & Electric Violist - Songwriter - Music Teacher

My most recent original song release, "I'll Always Sit Beside You", has been featured in The Daily Herald newspaper in Illinois. I wrote this song about a beloved neighborhood watering hole, and all the musicians on the recording are regulars from that very bar.  Listen to the song and read the article by clicking here.
