I am a B.M.I singer/songwriter with many 70's folk artist influences. My songs take on a realistic meaning of life "the good and the bad", However by the end of the track my songs offer some light of hope. My songs feature catchy hooks and lyrics with inventive chord phrasing.

Biography

My songs are a compilation of thoughts, ideas and inspirations and sometimes repressed feelings, that add a genuine meaning to the song. The goal of a songwriter is to represent truth or try to interpret the best way you can however, you must get your point across. I prefer to write about real people and events in my life and the lives of other people. This brings out the human side of the song. I believe my writing constitutes this musical window in my soul, and when its closed nothing gets out ,however when its open things just start to flow. My first CD Idyllic Vision was written and recorded after 911 and the songs represent the needed healing process offered to the listener traumatized by this horrific tragedy in our lives.
