The SteelDrivers

I have been a proud member of The SteelDrivers since Jan 2012. They asked me to become a partner when founding member Mike Henderson left the band.

I had pretty much settled into a life of studio work but when the opportunity arose I jumped back into the road life. And we won a Grammy!


Various Artists & Bands

Sometimes I can't believe how lucky am to have played music with these great artists and friends.
John  Hartford. Vassar Clements. Holly Dunn. Alison Krauss. Jon Randall. Sweethearts of the Rodeo. Dolly Parton. Dixie Chicks. James Taylor. 

Frazier Moss. Matthews Wright & King. The Nashville Jug Band.

Kathy Chiavola. Irene Kelly. Traylor Parker. The Cluster Pluckers. Chet Atkins.


Alison Krauss

Alison Krauss has been one of my bluegrass buddies for a long time. We grew up together in the midwest.
She asked me to play mandolin on her TWO HIGHWAYS record. Part of  that project was included on this platinum selling greatest hits collection, NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU.


Dolly Parton

Playing on Dolly's HALOS & HORNS record and world tour was an incredible experience and education. It was a great time!

Several years later she came to my studio to sing on a song Bryan Sutton was producing. What a blast!

She is absolutely one of a kind.


Live And Well

This DVD was recorded live onstage at Dollywood during the sold out Halos and Horns Tour.


Dixie Chicks

I was honored to join up with the lovely and talented Dixie Chicks for a non stop world tour in support of their HOME record.

This live DVD showcases how much fun we had on stage every night. It was a wild ride.



The Grave

Antoine Silverman, a first call session violinist in NYC, hired  me to play mandolin and record the music for this HBO movie.
