  • Location: Fremont, California, United States of America

For generations Rod's ancestors, on both his Father & Mother's side, lived in the foothills of the Appalachians in south eastern Kentucky on the banks of the Cumberland River. They were farmers, school teachers, coal miners, & (MAYBE?) a moon shiner or two. His family tree on his father's side boast's about the inclusion of one of this country's noted pioneer & frontiers men, Daniel Boone. Rod claims Daniel as his 5th or 6th Great Uncle.

His parents, looking for work, left the farm and headed for Chicago before he was born. Rod was born in Chicago a few years later, number four of 5 children. When he was about 7 years old his Dad and Mom missed the farm life and moved the family back to Kentucky. Unforturnatly a few years later the family broke apart and for the next 5 years Rod and his brother would live with their Grandparents on a farm in Ky. near the Columberland River. Many of his songs are story's about this time in their lives. Rod say's he would like to try and preserve the family roots & memories through song, the place they lived, their way of life, and words they spoke before it's all forgotten. His musical style typically falls in the Americana/Alternative genre..blending Folk, R & B, Humor (Novelty), and Blues with a Country flavor.

His influences include John Prine, the late Steve Goodman, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Elvis, Beatles, Lyle Lovett, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more..His musical taste runs from Country to Classical and everything in-between.

Rod worked the small club circuit in Chicago and California, but doesn't crave the limelight. His preference wouuld be for an established artist to record one of his songs. He currently has two albums available "Appalachia" and his latest one, named after a club in Chicago called "The Earl Of Old Town" where he met John Prine and Steve Goodman. Both albums are available on several site's and soon to be available on this one.

He currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area Ca. and is in the process of writing a new album.
