ABOUT

I am a singer songwriter who plays piano, electric and upright bass, rhythm guitar and sings. I have written many original tunes including the book and music to a musical play. I have played live for many years in some very large and very intimate clubs. I have played in pop, punk and original bands as well as jazz quartets and duos. I have done many recordings as well.

Influences

I am influenced by great songwriters of many genres. I enjoy great melody and great lyrics. At times I enjoy nonsense lyrics, but prefer to sing and play a song that evokes emotion. Some examples are Paul McCartney and the Beatles, great songs from the Great American Songbook. I can sing the styles McCartney, Tony Bennett, Freddie Mercury (changing the key of course), and others. I am selective about what songs I will sing and those that I won't.
