I'm really honored to have won two Broadjam contests in one month with "Breathe Your Name" for Song of the Month and "All I Ever Wanted" for Best Country Song.


2010 United Kingdom Song Contest - RUNNER-UP - Adult Contemporary Category - for my song "Hotel Elevator"

2009 Song Of The Year International Song Contest - WINNER - Adult Contemporary Category - "Hotel Elevator"

2009 Mike Pinder's (Moody Blues) Songwars - WINNER - Indie/Alternative Category - "Hotel Elevator"

I love writing songs. I am inspired by great songwriters like Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Sting, Jackson Browne and Jeffrey Steele. I try to write from the heart. My music has been described as "profound pop."

Thanks for listening.

I just noticed that you listened to a few of my "songs"... Only Stay With Me is close to being a finished song and the rest were posted mainly to send to another friend of mine.
I asked you to consider Just Short of Love because it has no music written for it and it's a different from the rest of my stuff... It was reviewed by Steve Williams who owns Chapel studios in London... http://www.thechapelstudios.co.uk/Team.html... 1 he had a few questions but gave the lyrics a very favorable critique... check it out and the artists he has worked with...
I guess what I'm saying is, I'm hoping you don't make a decision to NOT contact me because of what you heard on my home page... or without reading the lyrics for Just Short of Love... I am definitely NOT a musician or singer...
Mostly I just wanted to clarify my intent after I saw you listened to those songs...
If I don't hear from you that's very understandable and I won't be bugging you again...
Thanks for taking the time to listen though, regardless of your decision...
