Some Musician Friends

These talented musicians have recorded with with me in my home studio.

Smokin’ Joe Rodak

Smokin’ Joe Rodak is a lifelong performer. He’s been playing guitar for around forty years. In August 2020 he released his “Best of” compilation of original songs. He’s currently performing as one half of “The 2 J’s”.

Smokin’ Joe has recorded with me as a solo artist and as part of The 2 J’s.

He may be available as a session guitarist.


Cletus Stimpy

As the drummer for Stimpy’s Revenge, Cletus Stimpy was equally known for his precision on the drums and his bold and colorful style on the stage.

Cletus has recorded with me as a solo artist. He’s a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

He may be available as a session drummer.


I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy live performances from these artists.


Indré is a local band fronted by singer/songwriter and rhythm guitarist Maddie Indré. Her brother Angelo Indré plays keyboards. The band’s current lineup is completed with Sam Merendino on drums and percussion, Dominic Merlitti on bass guitar, and Steve Beck on lead guitar.

The band has recorded and released several singles and at least one full length album.




Bosephus was a hard rocking band that I photographed at a local show in Kent, Ohio. I got to experience the band thanks to an invite to their bassist, Ron Cerosky, who I had met when he was a part of Akron area Americana band Low Watt Radio.

They were a fun band to watch as they performed all original songs.

I’m not sure if they’re still performing together.


I’ve enjoyed listening to these Northeast Ohio artists. I believe they all were born, raised, or began their careers locally. I’m not sure of their current performing status.
