Spanky is a solo singer/songwriter from Pismo Beach, CA, who has performed around the central coast for close to 30 years, and now travels the country doing what he loves– playing music and meeting people. His rich resonant vocal sounds flow over a foundation of acoustic instrumentation, consisting of 6- and 12-string guitar, banjo, and ukulele. His songs tell the stories of good times and friendships in a small California beach town, travels through the west, and other heartfelt journeys and comedic outlooks on life. His live performances are marked with alacrity and sincerity, and have resulted in a dedicated fan base that has followed him through the evolution of his distinctive musical style.
The last few years have been very different for Spanky. He has transformed from a semi-part time musician, full time single dad, and overtime project manager for a construction company to a 200 gig, 30,000-mile-a-year traveling troubadour blessed with the opportunity to explore this great country’s diverse people and pastures.
Spanky has released 2 CDs in the last 2 years. His 2012 debut CD, COOP’D UP and his 2013 sophomore release, COOPer DEUXper, are filled with songs that he wrote over the last 2 years for friends, fun, and fulfillment.
