"A sonic chameleon is what he is. An Imitator of almost any accent on the planet that has fooled entire audiences with his constant changing on stage. I watched him seamlessly go from Irish to Spanish to Scottish to Jamaican to German to Scottish. His imitations include cultural reference materials that most dont bother to learn. His imitations of Christopher Walken had me busting a gut. Where he can find time to breathe when he switches to singing and playing drums/percussion still mystifies me : Dave Herrera , Backbeat Editor ; Westword Magazine

I have been the lead singer for a touring Celtic Pirate rock band called Potcheen for the past 11 years singing/MC/front person as well as drumming/percussion and managing the band. Growing up near New York i was surrounded by accents. My father a German Immigrant my Mother an Argentinian immigrant, I have spent my life imitating the accents around me. I went to an International University where 60% of the students were from around the world. Imitation of an accent only works when you understand the slang/culture as well. I am a sponge for character accents as well.

I am a lead singer that specialized in Celtic (irish/scottish) music including traditional, punk and lilting (spoken word/rap).I can do a very authentic Irish (Northern or Southern) Scottish, English (several dialects), Australian. I can speak spanish (mother is from Argentina) and i have been told i have a strong Basque/Spaniard accent. I can also imitate most spanish actors (ex: antonio banderas) Infectlion is the key with any foriegn accent and proper grouping or phrasing which i have learned havign friends/collegues from many countries, The US has numerous accents from all over the country and i can do many of them. I can do many impersonations of cartoon characters, movie characters and personalities. My favorites are Christopher Walken, Jack Nicholson, Jack Palance, Yoda, Mickey Mouse, Yogi Bear, Fred Flintstone & more.
"When I originally hired Potcheen to perform at our Festival, i had no idea that Christian (Drummer/front person) could keep the audience in stitches in between songs with his humor, impersonations, stories complete with accents and then go right into singing songs, some with accents and some in characters. one of the truly most talented and entertaining bands that we have booked for the past decade.Potcheen Music LLC.
