I just finished my first album, "These Are the Rules," which is available now on iTunes, Amazon and other music sites. I was joined in this venture by Chae Brown, on vocals, Frank Christian, on guitar, Marc Dann on bass and Steve Holly on drums. Frank produced it and Marc engineered it.



My music was created as a result of the financial crisis.
I've written and played music for over twenty years, but it took a back seat to work and family. When my company and my job became victims of the financial turmoil, I found a new opportunity in my music.
I returned to the music I had written over the years and rediscovered a way to communicate about the crazy world around us. With the help of a few fellow musicians, I breathed new life into the songs. I began performing the songs locally and headed into a recording studio to record songs for an album. This fall, I completed the album, called "These Are the Rules," now available on iTunes, Amazon, Napster and other sites. I'm thrilled with the results and the reaction I'm getting as I perform, market and distribute my new music. With the help of the amazing guitar work of Frank Christian and the powerful, exciting vocals of Chae Brown, I've created music that connects with people in a surprising way.
Nearly all the music I've listened to over the years has influenced me in some way and taught me about the power of song. In particular, I've been inspired by Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, The Pogues, the Clash, Pete Townshend, the Replacements and many others. With their influence, I write soulful, humorous lyrics that make you laugh and cry, Americana-tinged stories about real characters and people, and music that rocks and hums.
The girl (or boy, when Chae sings) that broke your heart, the stupid things you say or do when you're in love, the way friends and family make you crazy and make you laugh... These are the things I focus on in my music.
I can't pretend that I know the answers to the problems with relationships, friendships or the economy, but I know that music helps make them a bit more bearable.
