Currently working on an acoustic EP



I have two lives. The Real World- I wear a suit and tie choking my neck as a Financial Advisors, dealing with the Blue Hairs and anyone with large some of money they don't have a clue what to do with The Escape World- I am a singer/songwriter and the former lead singer of a Rock band in the Twin Cities called Murge.

You can get more info about us at:

I started playing in 1992 when my dad bought me an old Mitchell MD 750-S acoustic guitar. I picked the guitar up, then put it down, then picked the guitar up and put it down for a couple of years until I went to college at St. Cloud State University. I started teaching myself how to play using various how-to-play-guitar overnight books. Instantly I started writing songs and fell in love with songwriting. I thought for the longest time that maybe I had a little case of A.D.D because I found myself zoning out a lot, but now I have come to the realization that I'm always thinking about writing a song. It consumes me everyday. Music is my passion and will be the rest of my life no matter what happens with it. Well, it kind of has to, because I tattooed the Chinese symbol for "Song" on my left inner arm.
I graduated from St. Cloud State University in the late 1990's with a degree in Finance and Economics and over 50 songs I had written on yellow legal pads. In May of 1996, I started in the investment business as a Stockbroker and spent the next 7 years of my life building a solid financial planning business, but there was still something missing. I needed to do something creative. My songwriting was put on hold to follow the road I thought I was supposed to trying to make something of myself with one of those so called careers, but I was always side tracked by songwriting. It would come in and out of my life as needed to get me thru the rough patches. I started my creative journey by answering a "Lead Singer" wanted ad for a band called Syndicate Avenue. I had to sing "Arms wide open" by Creed and "Loser" by 3 Doors Down for my first audition and after 4 call backs they decided to make me a member. We starting writing immediately and learned a bunch of cover songs. We played our first gig at The Red Carpet in St Cloud and it is a moment I will never forget. I had all the support of my good friends. When I walked out on that stage for the first time I felt an overwhelming feeling of calmness like I was meant to be on a stage. I knew right then, that this is what I needed in my life, an outlet to let all my thoughts and feelings out, a way to get things off my chest. There is not a day that goes by, that I am not thankful for the opportunity to make music.
Here I am today, after Murge has parted, going back to my acoustical roots, where I fell in love with songwriting over 12 years ago. I am currently working on an acoustic EP with the theme song being "Up, down and Sideways" which pretty much sums up my life. Keep checking. I will have some of those songs posted soon.
