About Me

Many thanks for visiting my website.  I have performed a wide variety of musical styles in my 40 years here in New York State's Capital District, from classical and easy listening to rock and jazz.  

I am a composer and arranger.  My most recent recording, Lights In The Distance, features both instrumental and vocal music and revisits original material I wrote between the seventies and nineties. My first CD, Closer To Home, an 11-song offering including both vocals and instrumentals in solo, duo and four-piece ensemble settings, continues to be popular.  Both recordings can be purchased on CDBaby, at various music stores in the Capital District, or by contacting me or attending one of my appearances.  You can hear samples of some of the tracks on each recording under the 'Listen Here!" tab.

I am working on two new recordings, the first being music I've written for church.   

I continue to perform, working in settings ranging from solo to multi-instrumental groups.  From time to time, I play keyboards and sing with two bands: Working Class, a six-piece classic rock group, and Operation: Groove, a five-piece funk and blues band, both in the Albany-Saratoga area.  It's also great to sit in with my musician friends when the occasion comes about. 


In addition, I lead a contemporary Christian music vocal group, Joyful Voices, sometimes accompanied by a small instrumental ensemble called Project Praise, at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church in Burnt Hills, New York.  I also visit other area churches, providing music for worship.  I feel that church is  where I do my best work and something that I've been called to do.

I wish you good living with the treasures of family and friends and always keep music in your heart.
