Feeling a bit camera shy


I am a singer/Songwriter. I have been Performing and songwriting since the 1970s. I spent many months during that time pitching my songs to publishers and producers in New York City where I traveled frequently from my hometown in Maryland. As the lead singer and Rhythm guitarist for one of the top three groups in the Baltimore/Washington area I gained a good deal of performing experience.

Through one of our gigs we became acquainted with a musician/producer from New York who began to manage us and introduced me to Paul Leka (Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye) who was a staff producer at Mercury Records. That led to a brief but valuable record deal with Mercury Records in New York. We recorded a single for the label the “A” side written by myself and the “B” side co-written with then staff producer Joseph Messina.

Back at home we were opening up in concert for major recording acts such as “Main Ingrediant” “The Buchannon Brothers” “Steam” “Lou Rawls” and “Nils Lofgrin” and a few others whose names escape me at the moment. After my group broke up; I formed a few acoustic duos before leaving the area for Nashville.

While living in Nashville for eight years during the late 1980s I pitched Pop/Rock songs on Music Row which was no easy task. “Four Star Records” Published about ten of my songs during that time. However the company based in Nashville did not do well and ended up going Bankrupt.

I have continued to perform live with groups currently my Wife and I have our own group called “DayDream ProJect”. I have a good deal of recording experience and have also done producing on two albums for both myself and another artist.

I continue to learn each time I write a song. I think that the willingness and ability to rewrite until it fits is the magic that makes commercial songwriting so challenging. Fortunately for me age is not a factor in songwriting. A good song is a good song.
