Album Notes
My song writing began in the band Calico which I lucked into through some high school friends.
We were a highly original/progressive band.
Most of the songs I wrote for that band have long been forgotten but there is one song "Through the Nation" which is still a favorite among friends. It is included on a album of mine entitled "Near the Bridge", released 2008.

OSU Jazz Ensemble :
I got my jazz background while studying and playing in jazz bands at The Ohio State University where I majored in music.

Hotel bands, Rock Bands Country /Rock bands, Jazz Bands, etc... :

This is the school of hard knocks where you drive $200. cars to smokey bars and spend $100 for every $50 you make.
You gain experience while accumulating debt and it never seems to end.

Solo work:
I figured out how to make a profit playing music;
Weddings, office parties, coffee houses, grand openings, graduation parties, birthday parties, retirement parties, hit the road, road, road.
Sometimes you get to perform original songs, too.
Project One:
After playing dance music in hotel lounges for about a year we decided to stop and regroup to try making our own music and see what happens next. So we released and album "Project One- It's About Time". It got us some airplay on the local jazz station and a string of campus and downtown gigs. But with a baby on the way and our lead singer getting very sick we faded away.

Electronic Technician:
I found a new line of work which was a lot easier mode of employment and more lucrative. So I settled back to writing songs and playing occasionally in my spare time.

Back to Music
It's time to answer to the calling of making more music after a couple of decades of the corporate life.

So with a number of solo and band bookings and a new CD to be released entitled "Dreams to Follow" it's time to hit the bricks.
