I discovered my passion for music at a very young age. I've been told that I just wouldn't stop singing no matter where I was! I was really drawn to soulful singers, music and great lyrics. At the age of 14 as I was just entering high school, my mother made the mistake of buying me a guitar and for me, there was no turning back and I knew what I had to do!
In 1976 as I entered High School, I followed my dream of music and joined my first of many bands. This began an exciting journey that turned into a 40 year career in the music business. With over 7500 nights on stage, I have spent many years filled with great audiences, music, and friends. This musical adventure has created a lifetime of wonderful memories!
It has been said that life has a funny way of sneaking up on you! This has certainly been the case in my life! The songs on my 2019 CD "Running From Crazy" reflect some of the most powerful and intense moments in my life. Recording this CD was musical therapy for me. It is my true hope that my music touches your heart or your soul in some significant way!
