and compassionate peace loving realist. Based out of Hastings-on-Hudson, New

up with along the Jersey shore. C's performing, writing, engineering and
producing credits include his own internationally acclaimed band Soulfarm,
American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox, Shlomo Carlbach, and Pete Seeger with
Bruce Springsteen. C also has numerous television and film song placements.
When not touring, C runs and owns Sherwood Ridge Studio, a state-of-the-art
recording facility just north of New York City. C brings his unique sound around
the world and his affection and passion for Jerry Garcia's music has been a
major influence.
