Scrapegoat and his backup band Skin & Bones perform their original style of High Class Hoedown music, along with generations of great music from artists such as Johnny Cash, Waylon And Willie, Hank Williams(1 -2 and 3!!), Son Volt, Lyle Lovett, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Devil Makes Three, Pokey LaFarge and much more. Solo, Duo or full band line up, it's a high-class hoe-down good time guaranteed!!


As a musician of over 30 years I have never allowed myself to be defined by a genre.

Although my oldest roots go back to singing and playing guitar around the campfire with my father and his cowboy buddies of the Old West Society, mostly on older/outlaw country, I spent many years of my youth and my days as a young adult performing many different styles of music.

People see my performances with my band Scrapegoat Skin & Bones and try to define us as Country, Americana or Bluegrass, but none can truly define our own unique sound that I have chosen to define as Highclass-Hoedown music. I believe as an artist one should not be afraid to allow any roots to bleed life into any written music, be it the anger of my metal days, the wild country of my youth, the Jazz influence of my music school education or simply the influence of current artists that inspire me today. This in my opinion is being true to self and true to this beautiful adventure of being a musical artist.
