ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I currently live in Bellevue Washington with my wife and son.
I was born and mostly raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Graduated from Saguaro grade school and Moon Valley High School. I first learned to play the guitar as a junior in high school (1976) when I picked up my mothers 1958 Harmony archtop f-hole jazz guitar. I Learned the required John Denver songbook and some Jim Croce tunes. After high school there were a few open mic nights and some jam sessions with local acoustic artists, but life started calling and music became a hobby instead of a profession.
I moved to Washington in May of 2001. I continued to play off and on (mostly off) until I married my wife Diana in 2003. With her inspiration the passion for writing music began again. Since June of 2003 I've written about 50 or 60 songs and these are some of them.
I Write using a Martin Cowboy II, and record using an Ibanez cutaway.
I started performing the tunes I was composing for my friends and co-workers, who discovered that they were great stress relievers when things got hectic.

At this point they kept asking me 'When is the CD comming out?'. So on April 21st 2004 I sat down in my living room with a Tascam 4-track recorder and my Ibanez, and recorded the tunes I had composed during the last few months. I named the CD '1958 Archtop Harmony' in honor of that first guitar.

The picture on the front cover is of a similar guitar to my first (the original fell apart several years ago) that I picked up on Ebay one day.

The picture above the couch is of my dog 'Gidget' - a portrait in colored pencil that my wife Diana drew.

I also creates web pages and have created several for some of my 'artist' friends as well as myself. Bob Debruyn (who also has a CD here at CD-Baby) and Bill Hranek, a musician and DJ in Phoenix, Arizona.

Currently I play at open mic's and 'Just Plain Folks' showcases in the Seattle area.

relaxing and meditative tunes
I like to listen to this album when I am stressed out.
I sit on my sofa at home with some hot chocolate and just
let the music soothe me.
