I've been a musician ever
since I can remember. I got a spanish guitar for my ninth birthday,
and before that, I played the trumpet. I had seen Hendrix on TV
and wanted a toy red plastic
electric guitar. Instead, I got a real instrument.
I soon got my first electric, and began playing in bands.
I started gigging and recording early in my youth, and by the time
I was in my early twenties,
I was a professional musician. I mainly played in bands, but I also
did session work.
In 1998, after months of recording and touring in Scandinavia, I
quit my professional career as
a rock musician. For several months, I didn't touch my instruments,
I had become disenchanted
with the electric guitar.
My musical batteries soon recharged. Playing my old Dobro resonator

now I sat down to learn it, having a great time with the music in
Being the whole band all by myself has turned out to be a huge source
of enjoyment for me.
Digging the driving fingerpicking and big bottleneck sounds of the
I now play concerts and record again.
