As many writers do, I keep a notepad full of interesting phrases and words that pop into my head periodically. When I sit down to write I'll let one of those things get me started and attempt to get into a flow. It's the best when it's a stream of consciousness thing.

Joined by friends David Anthony on drums, Michael Hoddy on keys and organ, and Dave Macarone on bass releasing the album, “Drawn By The Flood” in 2012, with all original songs, a deeply moving blend of country, folk, blues and soul, recorded at Stonecrest Studios in Warren NJ. I’m glad he found his own voice and is making his own music, an excellent addition to the illustrious list of Jersey sons.
On August 6th he released a new single 'Take It Slow' and is currently working on a new album for a 2014 release.
