I am a singer/songwriter and I play the acoustic guitar and keyboards. I sing and play a variety of original songs in the styles of Pop, R n B, American Standards, Love Ballads and Dance music. In past years, I have performed at clubs, restaurants, piano bars, parties, social events, park festivals, and many studio recording projects. Audiences have been very pleased with my performances and most often people will tell me how well they enjoyed listening to me perform.
A few artists that my original songs are similar to are: BeeGees, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Rogers, etc.. I often perform solo or accompanied by a bassist and a drummer/percussionist. My immediate goal is to perform to live audiences more with other musicians, as I am currently recording my third album of original songs for compact disc.
