About Me

Many thanks for visiting my website.  I have performed a wide variety of musical styles in my 40 years here in New York State's Capital District, from classical and easy listening to rock and jazz.  I continue to perform, working in settings ranging from solo, duo and trio work to work with High Definitionan eight-piece ensemble specializing in classic rock and dance music, and What She Said, a five-piece group specializing in a wide variety of music.  It's also great to sit in with my musician friends when the occasion comes about. 

I lead a contemporary Christian music vocal group, Joyful Voices, sometimes accompanied by a small instrumental ensemble called Project Praise, at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church.  I feel that this is where I do my best work; please feel free to come and worship with us.


My most recent recording, Lights In The Distance, features both instrumental and vocal music and revisits original material I wrote between the seventies and the nineties.  My first CD, Closer To Home, an 11-song offering including both vocals and instrumentals in solo, duo, and four-piece ensemble settings, continues to be popular.  Both recordings can be purchased on CDBaby, at various music stories in the Capital District, or by contacting me.  You can hear samples of some of the tracks on each recording under the "Listen Here!" tab.  I expect a third CD to feature music I have written for church.   

I wish you good living with the treasures of family and friends and always try and keep music in your heart.
