Based in Fort Mill, South Carolina, a longtime songwriter/guitarist who is getting back into the music business and pro songwriting after a long hiatus.
I was born and raised on Long Island, NY, where I started to play guitar and write songs as a teenager. Growing up, I was inspired by listening to such artists as the Eagles , Allman Brothers, Steely Dan ,Peter Frampton ..... most of the classic rock groups ...... and more recently it's been pretty much ... Bach to Rock .!!
In the late '80s I had some success, getting placements with a few label artists. At the time I was writing more R&B and dance music, voted top amateur songwriters in New York City by ASCAP,
, I collaborated with a several great writers from New York and wrote a song called 'Cry Baby' for Polydor artist Nikki& four singles for singer Donna Marie, who was signed to Covert Records. Covert was a label owned by Billy Joel's sax player, Richie Cannata."

A Dance With Angels(Antoinette's Song)
Perfect vocal delivery for the lyric content of this song. Very evocative. The choruses are appropriately deep, with the chorus lending invaluable support. Powerful. I will surely revisit this one. Great job.
