My first release was on cassette, no title, just two songs.

Never Too Late - 2005; ten songs, but most recordings have been remixed and/or re-recorded.

Categorical Enigmas - this was a couple of years ago.



I'm a musician (obviously), but I also play hockey (roller and ice), and I cycle. --- last number of years, I've been riding (my bicycle!) in several MS and Livestrong (cancer) fundraisers. Lots of challenges and way to be charitable w/limited funds and glad to be in good health. -----
---- Music was always around as a child, my mother had records of all kinds: the Beatles, Yes, David Bowie, Allman Bros., Santana, many more, and of course, kids records like The Electric Company. --- First concert was to see John Denver at the Philadelphia Spectrum in the early/mid 70s. First record purchased was Rock 'n Roll Over by Kiss. --- Began playing guitar in 1977. Learned some chords from my brother, and spent the next couple of years playing all the time, on my own, getting to know this wonderful instrument. Then in high school, I started playing with other people and forming bands and jams. --- Started playing in clubs in 1982, playing electric guitar for original hard rock bands. Had some successful times with a few bands, including 5 years with original metal band, Rough Dymond. Learned a lot about performing at gigs, recording, merchandising, some of the ups and downs that go with the music business. --- Began performing solo as well as with bands around 1993. Performing at coffeehouses, open mics and music conferences - trying to expand musically and to learn more about the music business. It has been this transformation that has lead me to become more of a singer/songwriter. I continue to write and record music, mostly rock songs and rock/metal instrumentals. Recently, I've signed up on Sonicbids and I'm finding this service to be helpful for obtaining gigs and entering songwriting contests. --- Most influential guitar players: Edward Van Halen, Carlos Santana, Matthias Jabs, Angus Young, Ace Frehley, Lee Ritenour, George Lynch, Les Paul, Stevie Ray Vaughn, et al. --- Most influential singer/songwriters: McCartney & Lennon, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Paula Cole, Sting, Bruce Cockburn, Patty Larkin, Phil Lynott, et al.
