I was fortunate to grow up in a time when pop music was truly the soundtrack of times. It seemed like every week there were new bands pushing the boundaries past what had come before & it held the promise that no matter what was happening around us, somehow music could make it better. This is a very idealistic recollection on my part but for a few years I really believed music could make a difference in the world. My earliest influences were the Byrds & Buffalo Springfield. These bands & all of their subsequent variations still have a deep effect on my music today.

Over the years, I have performed in a variety of different musical formats. In the 1970’s I played out acoustically both solo & as a duo. Later I graduated to playing in electric bands. It was during this time period that I started writing original compositions.

From 1982 to 1989, I concentrated solely on writing, recording my songs & putting together a studio. I have over (60) master quality recordings from this period. In addition, to having songs published, I became a member of BMI & I had a recording contract with “Torchlight Records”.

From 1994 to 2002, I performed out with my classic rock cover band “Roadside Attraction”. During that time period, I played at over (160) locations in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware & Maryland, doing over 100 dates a year. From October 2002 until June of 2003, I performed as a solo acoustic act.

In June 2003, I put together another studio & started recording original music again. In 2007 I released “One Side Love Affair” & “Walk Into The Light”. Additional releases include “Take Me Down Slowly” in May 2008 & “Choice Cuts” in June 2009. In December 2010 I released “Out Of Control”.

I went through some life changes starting in 2011 which I choose to call my Journey of Discovery. Call it what you will it took me until now to get another group of songs I felt were ready to be heard. The Title of the New CD is “True Believer”. Most of the songs have a Spiritual Content in the Lyrics. It is my best work to date

“True Believer” & “Out Of Control” are now available for Purchase & ITunes at CD Baby & Amazon”.

I have 12 songs in various stages of production that I am preparing for a New Release “It’s My Turn”. I plan on releasing this material in the Spring of 2015.

My plans for the future are to continue to record new music & follow the path that I been traveling on since I heard the Byrds “Turn Turn Turn”, the Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” & Crosby Stills Nash & Young’s “Carry On”.
