I'm very hopeful that an accomplished artist will hear my music and want to use my songs. I'm also interested in writing songs,instrumentals for use in television shows, commercials, radio, or any other media production that would be enhanced by having a great musical background to it. If you have any projects I could be involved with feel free to visit my website and please drop me an email.
I feel very fortunate that my father (a concert violinist and graduate of the Julliard School of Music), introduced me to my love of music, and the guitar at the age of 5. Learning basic music theory, which I mixed with my own creativity, I soon learned I had the ability to re-create most anything I heard and loved being able to add my own feel to the songs.
Influenced through the years by groups like the Beatles, The Doobie Brothers, and Creedence Clearwater Revival, I developed my own playing style, which is purely a mixture of all the great musicians I learned from earlier in my life.
I will start out writing a song that has a taste of John Fogerty in it, then go on to something much heavier, where you might notice a touch of Black Sabbath, or maybe even some James Gang "funk", then move on to an instrumental, with the influence of my guitar hero, Joe Satriani. I have so many influences that there isn't enough room on this page to name them all.
Though most all of my music must have at least a touch, or slight feel, or influence by some great musician, I always reach into my soul and inner spirit to create something very unique, using my own style which I've been working on my entire life.
After spending most of the 80's doing the Hollywood club scene with many different bands, I found that I was much happier being in my studio writing and recording my own music. It was like my head was full of ideas just screaming to be let out!
I love to just play a drum rythum and play one of my guitars and just see what happens. Most of my music starts out just like that.
Though my style is probably concidered old school, I'm personally glad that I'm doing these types of songs. What good is writting a good story if you can't hear the lyrics? They still have a solid danceable beat behind it. I hope you will all find something about my songs that you can relate to. If not, thanks for stopping by anyway.
