Welcome

Welcome to my website, I hope you'll find some things here that you'll enjoy.  My songs are arranged loosely into numerous CDs of material that span pretty much my adult life since 1977.  That's more than 40 years of experiences put into songs!  I would describe  myself and my music as an Indie songwriter with a blend of folk, soft pop and soft rock styles.  I shoot for an Easy Listening style, hopefully easy on the ears.


Many of the songs seem to always be a "work in progress" - I'll revisit them and fix small issues, record new tracks, remix, and upload the newest versions.  So, what you hear at any given time - is the latest version of that song that I've recorded, but maybe not the last.  However, as time goes by I am now hearing a much more "finished" sound to the songs and I'm more confident that the day is coming where the singles or an entire album will be ready for download.

Sometimes I collaborate with others, and those songs have been very enjoyable for me.  I have been blessed to work with the kind of creative artists who truly inspire me to do my best work, such as Mikael Schulin, Steve Kuryla, and R. Neal Gracey.  I've also been very excited to work with several female vocalists who have helped me to breathe life into songs that were written for and originally intended for, either lead or background female vocals.  To date, I am very happy to have worked with Kate O'Connor, Emily Eileen Herring, and Liel Bar-Z.  It's been such a joy to work with talented vocalists whose work allows me to listen to my own songs without being annoyed or overly critical with my own vocals.   See the menu item  "Guest Artists"  for more details!

Thanks for taking some time to look around and give a listen to the songs that are posted here.  Make sure that you also browse through the "Lyrics" page, as that's where the sum total of my songs are listed as well as easy guitar sheets are placed.  Browse the new section called "Song Bits"  for more detail on each song including song-specific photos!  Feel free to leave an email comment for me by using the "Contact" section -  thanks for stopping by!
