It's some raw, progressive and unapologetic shit. The fusion of raspy guitars, smooth vocals, and an infectious folk melody is a thing of beauty.”

— Santa Rosa Records

Old school singer-songwriter who delivers melodies and lyrics that are full of honesty and stories that are easy to imagine and breath in, connecting with something deep. ”

Mike Stocksdale @ The Songwriter Serenade at Matt Denny's (FAR-West after show)

The Songwriter Serenade at Matt Denny's (FAR-West after show), Arcadia, CA

FAR-West after show. Performers play their original songs for the audience on a lovely patio with a warm, inviting atmosphere. There are all styles and genres of music, with four or five different songwriters each week. The music is on a patio which is covered and has plenty of heaters for a warm, cozy evening during the winter. During the summer, we pull back the canvas roof and play under the stars.
