About Me

 Hello, and thanks for looking at my site. I guess this is the part where I tell you a little about myself. I am a guitar player/singer songwriter born and raised in the country between Baldwin, WI and River Falls, WI. In 2006 my wife Nancy and I relocated to Woodbury, MN where we lived for seven years before I moved back to my hometown of Baldwin which is where I still reside. 

 

I got my first guitar as a teenager and have always enjoyed playing and singing. I learned how to sing in a country church where my family was very involved in singing and playing music. This is  where I learned to harmonize and loved the sound of singing harmony with another person or in a choir.

 

My influences in music have varied greatly throughout the years. Growing up listening to Gospel and old classic country to today listening to all kinds of singer/songwriters, bluegrass, blues, country, rock or whatever strikes me. Along the way some of my favorites have been southern rockers like The Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Songwriters like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, John Prine, and Guy Clark to name a few. And of course many older rock and rollers like The Stones, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and probably my all time favorite, The Grateful Dead.

 

Thanks for taking a look at my site and do check out my schedule. Hopefully I’ll see you at one of my shows. Also be sure to contact me with any questions, such as bookings, cd purchases, or getting on a gig mailing list or, just to say hi. I love to talk about music!

 

Thanks again,

 
Rudy
