About Me

I've been a musician for 40 years this year. I started writing music in '72. I have played, or jammed with some of this professions top musicians. Among them include, Charlie Gates (Lead for Hank Williams, Sr.), Art Petty, (Tom Petty's Uncle), Sammy Skulnik (Lead Trumpet for the Tommy Dorsey Band). There are many more.

Although, I wasn't professionally active the entire time, I never stopped playing and meeting people along the way. In the late 70's and early 80's, I was part of a band called Misty Morning Blues. We played a kind of Blues/Soft Rock sort of thing. Samples of my style are on the myspace/geojepsen page, or on the www.hellobradenton.com page. At present, I run a portable recording studio and produce music for the locals. Samples of that will soon be available.

My Influences / Fav Artists

As a child, there was a garage band just down the street and around the corner from my house. right on Cermack, just down for Morton East, A couple of the guys were friends with my brother and they came over to play in my house. They called themselves, "The Chicago Authority Transit." After listening to them play, they were my "Inspiration" and I knew I wanted to be a musician.
