Welcome. Like someone once said in a song, "What a long, strange trip it's been." I remember music being something special for, well, as long as I remember. My Grandparent's classical records. My Parent's big band & early rock & roll. "Tell it to the Marines." My older sister's eclectic record collection. That 9 transistor®™ radio that went everywhere with you. WJR, WXYZ, WKNR, CKLW, WRIF & WABX. The Beatles, Rolling Stones & The Who. Mo Town. The Frost, Stoogies & MC5. Black Sabbath, ELP & Chicago. Johnny Cash, Roger Miller & The Statler Brothers. The segue from "She Loves You, Ya, Ya, Ya" to "Power to the People." Trumpet in Jr. High School. Tuba and Bass Guitar in High School. Concert & Jazz Bands in College. And gigging. Lots & lots of gigging. Hard Rock covers through out Mid & Upper Michigan during College. Rock, Punk, Fusion & Jazz and an occasional Bluegrass or Country gig (Ask me about that cold day in Hell!) in and around Detroit in the late 70s, early 80s. Reggae, Rock, Country & Island Music in the Florida Keys in the mid to late 80s. Back to Metro Detroit to play the Blues. A few years in Elgin, IL then back again to Michigan. And Here I Am.

This is a collection of songs I've wriitten over the years. The oldest here was written around 1980, the latest in 2022. I use various styles with Blues, Rock & Country and other Roots music being the most prominent. I perform all vocals and instruments with a few guests helping me out. I hope you enjoy what I've created.
