"In your face" vocals, keyboards, and harmonica, country/rock singer/song writer. Billboard Song contest winner. Voice of many national commercials as singer and voice-over. Loves dogs, small children, and a good meal with his wife.
After being offered the opportunity to cut an album on esteemed Soul/Blues label, Catfood Records, late in 2021, we are now in the last stages of production for what will be HELLO MOJO. This is an album of 9 original songs of mine, written solo or co-written with Grammy winner Terry Abrahamson and Bob Trenchard. The album is produced by BMA winner Zac Harmon.
The release date will be late June/early July. Extremely proud of this collection of amazing musicians and singers.
