Quiet Man
Play Me A Song



My most recent CD, Play Me A Song, hit the streets in 2009 and is filled with 14 songs I wrote covering a wide rage of subjects from love and relationships to trucks and back breaking labor. This is a mostly acoustic project with imagery filled lyrics that have been described as mini movies. This is my second CD, coming just a few years after my first one, Quiet Man, which is also a collection of 10 of my favorite original songs with a strong Americana feel. Both projects were produced by Todd Burge at Bunj Jam Studios in Parkersburg, WV.

I was introduced to music at an early age by my parents, who have always been true supporters of traditional country music. . Some of my fondest memories revolve around jam sessions that my dad was involved in with my uncle and other family members and friends. Another thing that I unknowingly became aware of during those times was that for every great song there is bound to be a great songwriter. Whether it be for an unforgettable melody or thought provoking lyrics, the songwriter always shared equal billing among the music lovers I grew up around.

I started learning the guitar in my late teens and during the time I was struggling with those first guitar chords I also stumbled upon an eight track tape in my older brothers collection that I think had more to do with me trying to write songs than anything else. It was Prime Prine by legendary singer songwriter John Prine. I couldnt get enough. I played it over and over until I knew most of the words to all of the songs. This was also very beneficial in my guitar playing as I learned the chords and tried to accompany myself while singing the lyrics. It wasnt to long after that that I began to pay more attention to other songwriters and began making up lyrics myself. Since that time Ive been hooked on songwriting.

I try to write something new at least once a week and look forward to trying new songs out on attentive audiences.
