Debut CD, "Pocketful of Change", winter 2008.



I was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky. My exposure to music came very early through Southern Baptist church choirs and listening to my mother's collection of Elvis records. My father loved to sing while he worked, supporting the family with a used tire business. A toy guitar, given as a gift at the age of 5, was a glimpse of things to come. A church member taught me a few chords on that red, white, and blue guitar. Over the next few years, I learned a little more, but soon became interested in playing the drums. My grade school teacher loaned a drum set to me, which my ever supportive parents allowed in the living room. Teenage years were spent in and out of various bands in Lexington, none of which had much direction, but a lot of passion.
Once relocating to Clearwater, Florida in 1989, and having to unload the drums in favor of apartment living, I bought a guitar from an elderly man who had an ad in the paper, selling his collection of old acoustic and electric guitars. Through the years, I have acquired a very diverse taste for different genres of music. Blues, rock, jazz and country all hold a place in my heart. In my early twenties, armed with a few songs and an acoustic guitar, I began playing a few shows around town. I soon met other musicians to jam with and we formed a band called “Barrellhouse”. We played anything that felt good. Soon after developing some worthwhile original material, I returned to a solo career. Eventually I joined a new band named “Betty’s Not a Vitamin”. After two years of playing small clubs, a few large shows, such as opening for “The Blue Oyster Cult”, and a couple close shots at the big time, we eventually went our separate ways. I continued playing solo shows at the beach bars like Frenchy’s Rockaway, Palm Pavilion and many other local favorites. Since those days, I have played thousands of gigs in the Tampa Bay area. I have seen every scenario from the performer's point of view you could imagine. The experiences of my live performances are proving to be invaluable. Furthermore, I am lucky to have become acquainted with many talented musicians in the region and have learned many lessons from each of them.
I released my first record in 2008, titled "Pocketful of Change". Subsequently, I have been invited to perform at The Sarasota Songwriters Festival two years in a row, as well as being featured on WMNF radio in Tampa, Florida.
Music is a constant in my life. I can always look to it for inspiration. I believe that my songs are as diverse as the situations from which they arose. I hope you all enjoy the music that has come from the depths of my soul. It is important for me to share my efforts with those willing to lend an ear.
