When the Beatles came to America in 1964, my cousins and I started a Pop band called the Convairs. We played many Clubs, Schools and Colleges around Miami for four years very successfully. When the band broke up, I realized that being a "Lead Guitar Player" had no use in the 'solo' market place, so I began writing songs. Then all I had to do was learn to sing. I am still working on that one!

I have created and recorded seven albums, two vinyl pressings, two tape duplications, and three CDs. I began recording my songs in 1978 in a home studio in California, and my first album, Fantasy Ride was released on vinyl in 1981 when our first son was born. My music was full of urgency in the 1980's, protest songs and love songs were the two categories that I felt really passionate about. Then our second son along came with my second album, A Glint of Light in 1984.

Voice of the People (vinyl), my third album was recorded; and in 1987 my forth album was born called Temple in the Tress and a single was also recorded for the disco market that was beginning to emerge called Detective For Love.

Over all, when I would present my music to the record companies in Los Angeles in the 1980's, it was being described by the A & R Executives as a cross between Country/Folk Rock and Allan Parsons meets Pink Floyd.

In 1999, I began recording the spiritual songs that never got recorded before. In drawing from previous recording made earlier and adding new songs, my first spiritual album came out call: The Secret of You.

In 2003, I began recording the Country/Folk/Rock album of my dreams. The TRUST album came out in 2004. Finally I had created an album that I knew would bring many songs to many people. My voice had matured to a level of popular acceptance with a killer band from Vancouver,BC.

In 2005, I returned to the church market with a duet album, introducing my wife Patti Miller as a singer. She sings two solos, I sing two solos and there's four duets with three instrumentals, all performed by world class musicians on GREAT LOVE ~ ALOHA NUI.

2015 on the heals of divorce with Patti, I went back into the studio with almost 2 albums of material. 26 months later my newest and best was released, targeted for the Hawaiian market.
KALE'AOKALANI ~ Mystical Environments for Massage, Meditation and Healing.

Now I'm back on the road singing and selling KALE'AOKALANI... 2018 Tour!
