Artist Biography:
Music has always been a big part, an important part of my life. I was raised listening to an eclectic blend of big band, musical theater and all the great pop music of the 1960ís. For the most part, a self-taught musician, I am especially drawn to folk and folk-rock. Iím more of a songwriter than a singer, but I enjoy expressing myself through singing some of the music I write. Fortunately, I am blessed with musical friends with exceptional talents in the areas I lack, all of whom often contribute generously to my musical projects. They know who they are and I thank them all.

I enjoy and have been influenced by, but donít sound like, Gordon Lightfoot, The Beatles, The Eagles, James Taylor, Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen, Judy Collins, Joan Baez, Bob, Dylan, Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, Neil Young, and Peter, Paul and MaryÖ. just to name a few.
