My lyrics & poetry are my deepest loves & reveal who I am more than any of my career work. I’ve been fortunate to work with some great name talents over the years, who believed in my message, vision and passion, such as the legendary Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, John Lennon), Andy Slater, Derek Frigo, Jenny Price, VH1 Exec. Leah Horwitz, Warren Zevon & Don Henley’s band, Beastie Boys Adam Yauch & Mike D, Randy Jackson at Sony, Lou Maglia at Zoo Records. I co-wrote radio hits, Inside a Flower, Tell Me, & So Delicate, So Pure, with Italian Pop Star, Elisa Toffoli & Corrado Rustici. I wrote & sang with Guitar Hero Derek Frigo in our band U4EA & co-wrote songs with Joey Molland (Badfinger) & T. Schools on the album, Wear a New Face. My music has been used FOX’s Party of Five & the films Broken Vessels & Crimes of the Past. Dark Side of Genius & Fame-LA placed my songs as well. On Fame-LA I got to sing songs of Mark Cohn, Vonda Shepard, Amy Grant & Tara MacLean.
My career began in my teens in Seattle, as a Street Musician in the famous Pike Place Market & the Seattle Theatre Community. I was found there by casting directors of films, The Chocolate War & Class of 1999, which shot there & opened my road to LA, where I made films such as Wild at Heart, Wild Orchid II, Dark Side of Genius, The Little Death & Book of Love. I also enjoyed roles in television on The Tracey Ullman Show, Fame-LA, Moloney, Outer Limits, Dark Skies (as Jim Morrison) & Red Shoe Diaries.
I now live in West Los Angeles, CA, and am currently seeking a return to acting work in Film & TV & collaboration with more great artists in Music.
I come from two prominent Scottish-American family lines. I’ve been a Fellow in Good Standing of The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland for more than a decade, and a member of The Clan Fraser association for California all my life.
My upcoming release, “Warren & The Whiskey Sessions”, recorded at historic A&M Records, with Warren Zevon & Don Henley’s band, for which we also did sessions with Beastie Boys Adam Yauch & Mike D. at their studio, will be released in 2013, in concerted efforts with Promotor Glen Casebeer, at Road King Entertainment. I thank you for listening.
