Open-tuning finger picking alternated with slide and percussive style techniques produce a saturated and captivating sound. From groovy americana and uplifting songs about Jesus to enchanting melodies that transport the listener to another world, from personal stories about love to epic works about myths and dragons. Combined with his raw and honest voice and occasional foot percussion he delivers a one-man show that keeps captivating every second along the way as well as an energetic and enchanting performance backed up by his band.
