I am a songwriter. My style is rock/alternative with up-tempo rockers and story songs. I use strong aural and lyrical images that catch attention and make you want to sing along. I also do blues, C&W, Classical, solo instrument and covers. Whatever catches my fancy.

From plastic instruments through Strats and synths, I've been making music for a long time. Childhood lessons on accordion and piano; viola in high school orchestra; college jam sessions; playing piano at bars; analog, MIDI and digital recording in my home studio and at commercial studios - all of these things have given me the experience, desire and the opportunity to make music.
Influences? the bass singer, the harmonies and the twangy guitars of the late Fifties; the power of a church organ, the British Invasion; the seemingly perfection of the Classical masters; 3 guitar-slingers from the Yardbirds; Motown, Big Band, show tunes - the list goes on and I'm a musical chameleon looking like each of these as necessary.
