I am local musician in Boston and owner of Soundscape Tours. I moved here in 2007 to join a band and have played in some of the best (and dingiest) venues in town! I believe the best way to experience a city is through its music. My goal is to promote Boston’s music scene through celebrating the city’s significant impact on jazz, folk, and rock and roll in the 20th century. Whether you’re a longtime resident or visitor, I hope my tour inspires you to check out Boston bands and support live music in Boston and beyond.
