about

"Without a doubt, the best acoustic guitar CD that I have heard in a long time. Superlative in every way!
- Guitar Nation

“If you like new age sounds of Windham Hill and the crisp, clean ring of an impeccably played steel string guitar, then Borderline Normal is your ticket to ride.”
-Northern Express

“Guitar miniatures that tell stories. A delightful diversion with an attention to craft you don’t often hear”
-Midwest Record

“The essence of the music is all that matters here - almost impressionistic - shifting and drifting through a beautiful haze of sound."
-MISH MASH

-Several tracks from Borderline Normal have been featured in both the fifth and eight seasons of the PBS program Roadtrip Nation and NPR’s Open Mic
- Nominated by WYCE for a Jammie Award
- Several tracks received an honorable mention in the 2007 Great Lakes Songwriting Contest and the West Coast Song Writers 2008 Contest, as well as being named finalist in 9th Annual Great American Song Contest
