have always felt drawn to storytelling and much of my
songwriting reflects this by taking form as "story-songs,"
predominantly focusing on lyric and melody. I've worked as a
professional musician since 1974, going through many genres and
styles, from folk to jazz to rock 'n' roll, finally melding into
a fusion of folk, jazz and acoustic rock.
