ABOUT

What I'd really love to find is another vocalist who plays keyboard or guitar, or an existing band, who has their own repertoire of songs, that I can jam with, where I can add a 2nd or 3rd part to, and see how much better the new harmony sounds! I've made 3 albums (2 solo & 1 duet/trio) where I dubbed all the parts. Sang in my first male quartet at 12 -- and hundreds can vouch that I am a natural & consummate entertainer -- extraordinaire! Lead singer -- Okay, sure! But what I REALLY love doing is HARMONIZING -- especially grabbing that high 3rd part! But as a soloist, I can do it all -- from Sinatra to Jagger to Pavarotti to Garth Brooks! And don't let my white hair bias you, 'cause I am GREAT at what I do. Let me show you that I've finally decided, and able, to actually do, what I've REALLY always WANTED to do -- my whole life . . .

Influences

Cream / Hendrix / Woodstock (I actually sat on that very hill in NY recently and reminisced -- almost a spiritual experience)! Grew up in the church choir & solos, duets. trios, quartets, & college 16 member concert chorales. 8-year classically trained 4-octave Tenor vocalist. In collage sang the two opening Tenor arias of Handle's Messiah for the Chattanooga Sympathy Orchestra in concert -- (don't hold that against me) . . .
