I started making records in 1971 as an 18 year old signed to Atlantic Records. I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up and I got to be just that, a professional singer-songwriter! What a life!
”I play all day and sing the song, I wrote yesterday,
Hopin’ it will be the one, that gets me on my way” (Me And My Guitar…1971)
I have never stopped writing music in some form or another and thanks to technology, I have been recording and releasing new stuff since 2004 starting with my first EP, ”Side One”. 18 years later, I have released over a dozen CDs and am about to bookend ”Side One” with my newest batch of originals and release my new six song EP, ”Side Two”. At my age, I could never get record deal but thanks to the crowdfunding platform, folks like you have kept the music alive. If you have been a fan of my music in the past or not, you will love this new batch of tunes.
Thanks for the continued support!
