Born in Decatur, Illinois in 1960, I don’t ever remember not loving music. I don’t remember not singing. Shuffling through my parents LPs, listening to the soundtrack from Camelot, or The Letterman, and their ilk was my early musical education. I grew up singing in the church youth choir my mother directed in grade school. By the time I was in high school I was accomplished enough to sing in advanced choirs and compete at the state level. After graduating high school I cut my teeth on rock ‘n’ roll with a band called “Spectrum”. Also in high school, I received my first guitar. I think I knew four chords when I wrote my first song. I’ve progressed to the point where I try to bring a vibrant flare to more traditional songwriting standards.
As an adult God spoke into my heart that I am a psalmist, meaning, songwriter. So thats what I do all the time. I love it and am so blessed to be able to make Music From Maple Hill.
Maple Hill Studio is my current base of operations where I record my own material and provide audio/video services for customers from a wide variety of genres of music.
