ABOUT

I started playing in a band back in 1972. I played in a rock band that did cover tunes and played for dances and parties. I was the bass guitar player and lead vocalist. I played for about 10 years in a few different groups and then opened a recording studio in 1986. I have recorded hundreds of original songs and worked with countless musicians and songwriters through the years.

Influences

I love Pop/Rock music from the 70s. The Eagles, James Taylor, 3 Dog Night, Elton John, Bread... the list could go on.

In the 90s I released an album with a small label out of Pennsylvania. It was Contemporary Country and featured 10 original songs. We charted on the indie charts to number 14 with the cover track. I spent a week in Nashville and played at the Bluebird cafe during my time there. I love almost all kinds of music and am a proficient player on bass and keys.
