Asheville, NC is my adopted hometown. After more than a quarter-century in a smog-filled, traffic-jammed metropolis, I escaped to the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2000. I’m never leaving. And while my own personal musical preferences are well-advertised, I often — more and more as time goes on — interview local artists and/or write about subjects of local interest. Honestly, I really enjoy talking with most anyone who is passionate about her or his art.
For a couple of years now, I’ve also written a twice-monthly column called “30 Days Out,” previewing upcoming shows in and around Asheville. The column often spotlights local-based artists.
Below are links to some (but not all) of my locally-focused writing.
