Album Notes
I make my living as a carpenter and have spent the last 20 years playing drums with various bands on the fringes of the Chicago music scene. It was about seven years ago when I bought my then wife a guitar for her birthday or Christmas or something. Anyway she never really played it but I started playing it every chance I got; I think I knew when I bought it that it was really for me and it was going to change my life.

The guitar made sense to me and I continued teaching myself to play. It wasn’t long before I started playing and singing songs that I liked and then writing my own. I really felt that my whole life had been leading up to this. In fact the first song that I wrote -The Things I Wouldn’t Do For You- had been swimming around in my head for years before I ever picked up a guitar.

I’ve never been accused of being prolific but I wrote steadily through my divorce and recovery from it and at some point I realized that I had written some really good songs. Tapping into the studio engineering classes I took in college, I started building up a home studio and recording some of these songs. At this time I also started playing in front of people, which was very hard to do at first but I kept doing it until I started feeling comfortable.

Initially I played everything myself but later on I invited in a guitarist named David Nekola, that I knew from an old band, to handle some of the more difficult guitar parts. David really added a new dimension to the song on which he played.

My cd called Deep is out now and I am working on backing it up with some live gigs here in Chicago.
