Now booking shows for 2024


Forty-One Years and still doin' it! 

In my forty-one year career as a singer/songwriter, I have performed thousands of shows all over the mid west. I have almost that many songs at my finger tips. Mixed in with some original music influenced by such artists as The Jayhawks, John Hiaat, Bruce Springsteen, Blues Traveler and Bob Dylan. There are plenty of cover songs to please almost any crowd.

I am honored to be a five time Madison Area Music Award nominee and also the founding member of several successful groups including,  "LIVE WIRE"  "Gary & the Gators" " The Jessi Lynn Band" and my current groups, "Trailer Kings" "The Grooving Needles" & "The Back Pages"




Troye & Tim in their final interview with DJ Jesse Garren from WMMM. They placed in the top 3 out of 60 groups that entered the 2017 Project M Songwriter Contest. An album of new songs will follow soon.
