4th place winning lyrics: confessions - American Songwriter Magazine


I've only my released music on the web. I've had a few songs played locally, and had a few played on the radio in the UK. Additional music can be found at



I started writing songs about 20 years ago. I am also a filmmaker. My songs tend to have a visual tone and quality to them. That said, all of my songs are stories. I am heavily influenced by bands such as Pink Floyd, Dave Matthews, Sting, Don Henley, Bruce Hornsby, Tom Waits, Edwin McCain, Kenny Loggins, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, and hundreds of others. I am also heavily influenced by orchestral movie scores. Composers like Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, John Williams, James Newton Howard, and so many more.
I guess the thing that sets me apart from other bands is that, like I stated before, when I write songs I disregard what category it may or will fall into. My songs often can't be placed into specific categories.
I also produce other artists music. I play in other bands as well. I try to stay active in music as much as I can.
